Posted by jcm22 at Feb 20, 2014 10:00 AM |
ChiSRA invites papers for its first international conference in the UK, The "China Dream": passions, policies and power, 24 – 26 September 2014.

The "China Dream": passions, policies and power

As China has grown economically, its cultural, political and civil landscape has changed profoundly. As well as raising living standards, China’s leadership must satisfy its people’s growing desire for world-class education, healthcare, food and water security, clean environments and cultural influence in arts and technology.

In November 2012, President Xi Jinping’s set out the “China Dream” policy but China-watchers the world over have been asking what it all means.

“Our conference will explore the “China Dream” in a provocative and exciting way”, says conference organiser Dr Amy Barnes.

“That’s why we’re interested in hearing from academics and speakers from across the arts and social sciences spectrum. We want to explore the political, sociological, legal, cultural, technilogical and ethical aspects of the “China Dream”.”

To find out more about how to submit a paper for our conference, please go to Call for papers.

The deadline for submission is Friday 25 April 2014.

ChiSRA was formed in 2012 to offer a forum for academics and students to share research interests in China and Chinese Studies and to build and develop relationships with Chinese institutions.
