Events

Dear Affiliates and Friends of CSCC:

We are holding almost all of our programming onsite. We will continue to conduct some of our events in online or hybrid form. See individual event notices for details. Please join us, in person or online, for our speaker series (including academic papers and book talks by leading established and rising scholars), policy roundtables, thematic conferences, and distinguished annual lectures, all addressing important topics in the study of contemporary China. If you are interested in joining us for onsite or online events, and do not receive our notices, please email cscc-contact@sas.upenn.edu to get on our email list or to inquire about specific events, or check our website regularly as we add events throughout the year.

Best regards,

Jacques deLisle, Director

Guobin Yang, Deputy Director

Yuanyuan Zeng, Associate Director

*******************************************************

In addition to the events and programs it hosts, the Center for the Study of Contemporary China provides support for activities sponsored by others at Penn when their activities are directly relevant to the CSCC’s mission to advance our understanding of the political, legal, economic, and social factors shaping China and its role in the world today. In the list of upcoming events, the appearance of CSCC logo indicates CSCC-sponsored events.

Requests for co-sponsorship or other types of support should be sent to cscc-contact@sas.upenn.edu and include a clear statement of the activity for which support is sought, its relevance to the CSCC’s mission, and the specific type of support requested.  As an academic research unit, the CSCC does not provide support for programs whose purpose is to advance a particular political agenda.
