First call for papers – Conference and Doctoral workshop: China and the “Wider” Eastern Europe
April 1, 2018 - 00:00
This is a first call for papers.
The conference China and the “Wider” Eastern Europe will be held at the Centre for East Asian Studies (CEAS), University of Turku, Finland from 11th to 12th October 2018.
We welcome senior researchers and PhD candidates studying Chinese engagement with Eastern Europe to present their work. Other interested professionals, media, and representatives of firms are encouraged to participate in discussions and networking events. The conference is organized in co-operation with the University of Helsinki and the Confucius Institute of the University of Helsinki.
China’s increasing activity and prominence in Eastern Europe raises the need to examine the impact of China on the politics, economics, and culture of the wider region that ranges broadly from Greece to Finland and from the Balkans to Russia. Particularly, we are interested in how Chinese movement of people, ideas, and investments affect multiple levels of the region. We seek multi-disciplinary and multi-method studies on the interplay between China and Eastern Europe, but welcome all contributions that address the subject matter.
