China Academic Network on Gender

China Academic Network on Gender – Launch and Inaugural Conference

We are delighted to introduce a new network for Postgraduate students and Early Career Researchers working on Gender in China. The China Academic Network on Gender (CHANGE) will be launched at Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB) in Brussels on 14-15 May 2018 in partnership with SOAS, King’s College London, and East China Normal University. The network aims to be a platform where younger scholars working on Gender in Chinese humanities and social sciences will be able to network and share resources. We will also organise biannual themed conferences at partner universities starting in 2019.

All details and the membership form are available on the website of CHANGE:

The inaugural conference is conceived both as the network official public launch and as its first scientific manifestation. Titled Articulating Gender in Modern China: Retro-Prospective Encounters, the conference will bring together in conversation established scholars and early career researchers from the humanities and social sciences whose research focuses on gender issues in modern China. As a starting point for future collaborations undertaken within the network, its roundtable and research workshops will seek to uncover the main challenges, practices and methods of gender research in China to outline a state of the field we aim to promote.

Keynote: Prof. Jiang Jin from East China Normal University
