The 12th biennial Conference of the Nordic Association for Chinese Studies (NACS)
June 9, 2015 - 00:00-June 11, 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.
