Call for papers: The 12th biennial Conference of the Nordic Association for Chinese Studies (NACS)

March 1, 2015 - 00:00

The 12th biennial Conference of the Nordic Association for Chinese Studies (NACS) themed “China in the World and the World in China” will be held at Uppsala University, June 9-11, 2015.
 
The NACS conference theme, China in the World and the World in China, is a way of acknowledging that China is again rapidly returning to its former role in the world. The terms China and Chinese denote not only a country and its population but also a civilization, a way of life and governance. As before, when China interacts with the outside it evokes both admiration and fear. China is now changing by sending out millions of students, and investing in all corners of the world. Simultaneously it is inviting the world to participate in its development with both human and material resources thereby changing China and the Chinese.
 
The 12th NACS conference organizers particularly welcome papers or panel proposals touching the theme of China in the world and the world in China, but as a comprehensive conference bringing together China researchers in the Nordic area and beyond, proposals on all other China-related fields and topics such as politics, economy, society, history, gender studies, cultural studies and humanities are welcome. The NACS conference organizers welcome individual paper and panel proposals also from non-members. NACS will as far as possible support part of travel costs for Nordic MA and PhD students presenting papers.
 
The organizers propose the following panels: Chinese language and teaching Chinese; Religion and philosophy in China; Legal issues in China; Education sector in China; Migration in, within and out of China; Gender studies; Media and journalism; Urban and rural issues; Economy and economic policy; History (possible to divide in modern and pre-modern histories); Politics; Sociology and anthropology; Security and international relations; Responsible China; Environment/sustainability/climate change; The Revival of Confucianism; Open panels (to be proposed by participants). The panels will be changed in accordance with the incoming proposals for presentations.
 
Keynote speakers are Prof. Børge Bakken, Morrison Fellow at the Australian Centre on China in the World at Australian National University, Prof. Jean-Pierre Cabestan, Hong Kong Baptist University and Prof. Willy Lam, Chinese University of Hong Kong.

For panel abstract: maximum 1000 words (including spaces, excluding title, keywords and contact information on author/s). Submissions should be sent to: [email protected]
