Call for Papers: Berkeley-Stanford Graduate Student Conference in Modern Chinese Humanities

The Berkeley-Stanford Graduate Student Conference in Modern Chinese Humanities takes place April 26-27, 2013 at Stanford University.

Initiated in 2010, the annual conference brings together current graduate students from across the U.S. and around the world to present innovative research on any aspect of modern Chinese cultural production in the humanistic disciplines. The conference provides a window into current research in Chinese studies, and serves as a platform for fostering interaction among budding scholars of geographically disparate institutions, facilitating their exchange of ideas and interests. Specifically, the organizing committee hopes that this conference will encourage interdisciplinary scholarship within and between literary and cultural studies, cultural history, art history, film and media studies, musicology and sound studies, as well as the interpretative social sciences.

Currently-enrolled graduate students at any institution are encouraged to apply. Conference registration is free, and presenters will be provided with lodging by the conference organizers.
