The Department of East Asian Languages and Civilizations and the Center for East Asian Studies at the University of Chicago will host the third annual graduate symposium on twentieth-century China, April 12-13, 2002. Part of a year-long workshop devoted to interdisciplinary studies of modern Chinese culture and society, the symposium will create a forum for graduate students and recent Ph.D.'s from different institutions to present their work and have in-depth discussions. The symposium has been very successful in the past two years, and we are pleased to be able to continue providing a forum for exchange among graduate students for a third year. We encourage participants to approach the entirety of twentieth-century Chinese cultural history as an interconnected and dynamic process. The two-day event will seek presentations from disciplines such as, but not limited to, literature, historiography, drama, music, art, architecture, cinema and media studies. Proposals focusing on Taiwan and/or Hong Kong also are welcome. Graduate students and faculty members at the University of Chicago will be actively involved in the symposium. We will provide lodging for visiting panelists and may be able to provide modest funds to defray travel costs. We ask that faculty of Asian studies at various institutions please call their graduate students' attention to this event. Paper proposals, no more than two pages in length and with a cover letter, should be sent to: Krista Van Fleit at the address below. Please do not send faxes or email attachments. For more information, please contact either the faculty sponsor of the project, Professor Xiaobing Tang (firstname.lastname@example.org), or student coordinator Krista Van Fleit (email@example.com). See the Webpage for the workshop and symposium at: http://cas.uchicago.edu/china20. The deadline for receipt of proposals is March 1, 2002.
