The annual Berkeley-Stanford Graduate Student Conference in Modern Chinese Humanities brings together current graduate students from across the U.S. and around the world to present innovative research on any aspect of modern Chinese cultural production in the humanistic disciplines. The conference provides a window into current research in Chinese studies, and serves as a platform for fostering interaction among budding scholars of geographically disparate institutions, facilitating their exchange of ideas and interests. The conference hopes to encourage interdisciplinary scholarship within and between literary and cultural studies, cultural history, art history, film and media studies, musicology and sound studies, as well as the interpretative social sciences.

The 2019 keynote speaker is Andrea Bachner, Comparative Literature, Cornell University. The 2019 alumni speaker is Keisha Brown, History, Tennessee State University.

There will be an award for the best presentation in celebration of the ten year anniversary of the conference.
