Society of Sinophone Studies Conference: Multisensory Dissent and Alliance Building
The Inaugural Biennial Conference of the Society of Sinophone Studies.
Please join us for a three-day conference hosted over Zoom on Multisensory Dissent and Alliance Building: The Inaugural Biennial Conference of the Society of Sinophone Studies. The conference features one keynote speech and six panels spread across three days. By mobilizing interarea, interdisciplinary, and cross-methodological perspectives on multisensory modes of expressing dissent and ally-ship across the Sinophone world (including Taiwan, Hong Kong, mainland China, Southeast Asia, North America, Africa, and Europe), this interdisciplinary conference seeks to generate new cross-disciplinary frameworks for understanding, interpreting and amplifying the broader theoretical, methodological, and relational salience of such multisensory expressions. Please visit the conference website for more information and to register.
This conference is sponsored by the Society of Sinophone Studies, USC Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures, USC East Asian Studies Center, and USC Center for Transpacific Studies.
The USC U.S.-China Institute hosted a panel discussion to look at the biases and discrimination against Asians and Asian Americans, the resistance to it, the role America’s relationships with Asia play in shaping perceptions, and trends in Asian American political participation.
Please join the USC U.S.-China Institute for an online panel discussion on the Belt and Road Initiative in Southeast and Central Asia.
