Expressions of interest are invited for a series of interdisciplinary panels on Canada's relations with China to be held on October 7-8, 2011 at the University of Regina as part of the 30th anniversary of the university's partnership agreement in 1981 with a Chinese university, the first such arrangement by a Canadian post-secondary institution. The conference also marks the 40th anniversary of the exchange of embassies between Canada and China.
In conjunction with other commemorative events, the conference will welcome scholars and representatives of government, the private sector and NGOs that have played an active role in this relationship. Conference participants will be drawn from the University of Regina, other Canadian institutions and their Chinese counterparts. Applications from diverse disciplines including history, sociology, political science, economics, international studies, education, business administration and religious studies are encouraged. Participation is also invited from graduate students. It is hoped the results of the conference will be disseminated in at least one edited work to be published.
If interested, please send a paper title and a short one-paragraph description by March 15, 2011 to David Webster and John Meehan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
