The 14th Biennial Conference of Nordic Association for China Studies (NACS)

June 13, 2019-June 14, 2019
University of Bergen.

'When China Faces the World: Engagement or Disengagement? Marking the Centenary Anniversary of the May 4th Movement.' Modernization is a painful process for any nation with a great tradition. To engage or not engage with the world is still a core question for present-day China - even after one century’s vicissitudes since the May Fourth Movement of 1919 that marked elites’ consensus to revolutionize the core values of indigenous traditions.

The 11th Annual International ADI Conference: Asian Mobilities

June 17, 2019-June 19, 2019
University of Copenhagen

The 11th ADI conference continues the tradition of investigating Asian intra-regional and transregional connectivities.

+ Google Map

20 years ago, most people who came from China to Europe did so to make money. Today, increasingly, they come to spend it – as tourists, students, managers of Chinese multinationals, or as lifestyle migrants looking for a better environment. In both migration waves, Hungary has played the role of an unlikely pioneer as a destination of small traders in the 1990’s and host of a ‘residency-for-investment’ scheme in the 2010’s. Based on long-term ethnographic research, this talk will focus…

East meets West: Annual NEWDAY summer school.

August 5, 2019-August 13, 2019
Nansenskolen, Lillehammer, Norway
