Events

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.
