Call for Papers - CSAA Conference 2011
The Chinese Studies Association of Australia - 12th Biennial Conference
The Australian National University, Canberra, July 13-15, 2011
One hundred years on, is it too early for an assessment of the Xinhai Revolution of 1911? For a country whose historical imaginings are especially informed by anniversaries remembered and forgotten, the year 2011 marks a century since China saw events bringing the end of imperial rule. Just as the varying assessments of this revolution have reflected the transformations that the country has undergone during the past hundred years, those engaged with China are continually challenged to question and reflect on their ways of knowing their subject. We invite participants in this year's CSAA conference to reflect on this legacy of change, real or imagined, as China seeks to reinvent itself and its past in the 21st century.
The CSAA's biennial conference welcomes papers on any aspect of Chinese studies. Panel submissions are encouraged. The CSAA is the professional association for China specialists and post-graduate students in Australia and is affiliated with the Asian Studies Association of Australia.
Closing date for submissions: April 30, 2011
