The BACS-BPCS committee is pleased to invite early career researchers and fellow PhD students to submit proposals for paper presentations at our annual conference, under the theme of “China’s Global Role in the New Era”.
The world community is undergoing turbulent international dynamics due to escalating uncertainties. Meanwhile, China’s rising global impact has urged the need of rethinking China’s position in the new era, especially during challenges like Brexit and Sino-US trade tensions.
We welcome proposals for papers on a broad range of China-relatedresearch, from all disciplines and all universities. This year’s conference highlights the concept of “a community of shared future for mankind”, and paper topics include but are not limited to:political economy, law, history, culture, literature, social science, art, education and interdisciplinary research.
Our annual conference this year will be held at Jesus College, University of Cambridge, in collaboration with the Cambridge China Centre. Conference attendance is free of charge.
The submitted proposal should be no longer than 300 words, sent along with a brief biography. The deadline for abstract submissions is 11:59 pm GMT, 9 April2019. Accepted papers will be notified through email by late April. The Best Paper Award will be selected during the conference, and we expect to forward the outstanding papers to an edited volume (e.g. last year’s conference papers were selected and sent to the Amsterdam University Press).
