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 2024 keynote speaker is Jinying Li, Modern Culture and Media, Brown University, and the conference alumni speaker is Jianqing Chen, Film and Media Studies, Washington University in St. Louis.
