The British Association for Chinese Studies (BACS) will hold its annual conference at the University of Edinburgh, 7-9 September 2011, at which Professors Wang Hui and David Der-wei Wang have agreed to deliver presentations at a special keynote opening session on the evening of 7 September. The regular panels will be on 8 and 9 September. We welcome panel and paper proposals in any field of Chinese Studies. We are especially keen to attract panel proposals that bring a group of scholars together to discuss a major issue in the study of China. BACS conferences are open to both members and non-members, and we welcome participants from all countries.
All proposals should include: name(s), affiliation and contact details (email). Proposals for panels should include: list of proposed presenters; list of titles of individual papers; abstracts of each paper (up to 250 words); proposed chair/moderator; discussant, if relevant. Proposals for papers should include: title of paper and abstract of up to 250 words.
All proposals should be submitted BY 2 May 2011 to Frances Christensen
Panels and papers will be selected according to academic merit, and BACS will inform proposers of the outcome of the assessment in the week commencing 19 May 2011.
