CfP: University of Exeter Global China Research Centre PGR & ECR Seminar Series
The University of Exeter Global China Research Centre would like to welcome proposals for the spring 2024 session of our graduate and early-career researcher seminar series in China Studies.
We welcome proposals for presentations on not only modern history and translation studies, but also any work which falls under the rubric of China Studies. This includes but is not limited to comparative literature, visual culture, film and media studies, as well as museum studies, to name just a few. Interdisciplinary approaches with a strong historical, cultural, or linguistic focus are particularly welcome.
We invite fellow graduate students and early-career researchers to submit proposals for seminar presentations on any topic pertaining to China Studies. The convenors are interested in a wide range of topics, including but not limited to the political and intellectual history of the PRC, the maintenance and management of heritage sites, the culture and dissemination of Chinese artforms and artefacts, Sino-Anglo entanglements in art history during the sixteenth to eighteenth centuries, the role of film and imagery as a medium, and Chinese modernist and transnational feminist literature.
The graduate and ECR seminar series will be open to students and staff of any affiliation. All convenors are current graduate students or early career researchers, and the seminar series is intended to provide an environment in which speakers may present research at any stage of completion to an audience of peers. This session of seminars will be held in person and/or online (depending on the availability of the selected presenters) during the University of Exeter’s autumn term, which is between 8 January and 29 March 2024. Presentations are expected to last between 15 and 20 minutes and will be followed by Q&A to be moderated by the convenors.
Those interested in presenting their research are invited to send a provisional title, an abstract no longer than 300 words, and a short biographical note to email@example.com by 8 January 2024. Any queries should be directed to the same address.
