Call for Papers: “China Time – Rethinking Cultural Encounters”
March 1, 2017
The 13th biennial conference of the Nordic Association of China Studies (NACS)
The conference theme “China Time – Rethinking Cultural Encounters” asks the participants to rethink cultural encounters with China based on the widespread notion that China’s time is coming. China’s rapid rise has changed world-wide perceptions of China as well as China’s perception of the world, thereby setting the scene for a new understanding of cross-cultural encounters.
Therefore, the conference invites all academic disciplines to ‘Rethink’ these cultural encounters within their field of expertise in the light of China’s development over the past decades.
While the conference organizers especially encourage papers rethinking cultural encounters, all China related papers and panels will be taken into consideration. This includes papers from non-NACS members.
The conference will be followed by a PhD Workshop on the theme of “Researching Cultural Encounters with China”.
Deadline: 1 March, 2017
Venue: Aarhus University, Denmark
