Call for Proposals - Michigan China Forum

Eighth Michigan China Forum (2010)
Saturday, May 8, 2010

Ann Arbor, Michigan

DEADLINE FOR PROPOSALS: Friday, April 30, 2010

Michigan China Forum was initiated in May 2002 by Michigan China Fellows, a group of Chinese graduate students and scholars in social sciences and humanities at the University of Michigan. The purpose of the Forum is to promote interdisciplinary discussions and excellence in scholarship. We are now calling for papers for our eighth annual Forum, to be held on May 8 in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

With the uniting theme of China, the 2010 Forum is opened to the following two groups of students and scholars:

1. Chinese students and scholars in humanities and social sciences, whose work are of general academic interests, which may or may not be directly related to China;

2. Students and scholars of other nationalities, whose works are related to various aspects of China, either in the fields of humanities (history, philosophy, art, culture, etc.) or social sciences (language, economy, society, politics, etc.)

You are welcome to present your papers, projects or research proposals, completed or in progress. We appreciate your contribution to the intellectual and academic diversity and quality of the Forum.

Based on the proposals received, presenters will be organized into panels. Each presenter will have 15 or 25 minutes for presentation (according to presenter?s preference). The presenter can choose either Chinese or English as working language.

Please send the following to Haijing Dai at hdai@umich.edu by 11 pm April 30:

• Your name, program of study, and contact information;
• Title of your presentation and an abstract (150 words maximum);
• The language (English or Chinese) you prefer to use;
