Call for Papers “China Time – Rethinking Cultural Encounters”

The China Research and Analysis Blog is happy to circulate a call for papers by the Nordic Association of China Studies


The 13th biennial conference of the Nordic Association of China Studies (NACS)

June 6 – 8, 2017, Aarhus University, Denmark.

The conference theme “China Time – Rethinking Cultural Encounters” asks the participants to rethink cultural encounters with China based on the widespread notion that China’s time is coming. China’s rapid rise has changed world-wide perceptions of China as well as China’s perception of the world, thereby setting the scene for a new understanding of cross-cultural encounters.

Therefore, the conference invites all academic disciplines to ‘Rethink’ these cultural encounters within their field of expertise in the light of China’s development over the past decades. While the conference organizers especially encourage papers rethinking cultural encounters, all China related papers and panels will be taken into consideration. This includes papers from non-NACS members.

The conference will be followed by a PhD Workshop on the theme of “Researching Cultural Encounters with China”.

Important dates:

• Submission of abstracts/panel proposals: March 1st, 2017

• Notification of acceptance: March 25th, 2017

• Deadline for registration: May 15th, 2017

• Conference dates June 6 – 8

• PhD workshop June 9 – 10

As Aarhus is the European Capital of Culture in 2017, we strongly encourage participants to book hotel rooms immediately upon receiving the acceptance notification.
