Dear Affiliates and Friends of CSCC:

Thank you for your continued engagement and you patience during our coronavirus-induced suspension of on-site programming. We hope that you all have been, and remain, safe and well. We continue our work in an online format. Highlights include our series of talks by leading and rising scholars in the field, our ongoing Penn Project on the Future of U.S.-China Relations, policy roundtables, and conferences on important topics in the study of contemporary China, and our series of conference volumes.

If you are interested in joining us for our Zoom events, and have not received a link via one of our email lists, please email [] or click on the registration links for individual events on our events page. We hope you will join us.

Best regards,

Jacques deLisle, Director, CSCC

Guobin Yang, Deputy Director, CSCC


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 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.
