Call for Papers: China mini-conference at APSA, San Francisco, Sept. 2020 (deadline Dec. 6, 2019)
You are invited to submit an abstract for a proposed mini-conference on Chinese politics for APSA 2020, which will be held September 10-13, 2020 in San Francisco.
Since 2016, the APSA Annual Meeting has featured a daylong China “mini-conference”. This mini-conference has been a resounding success, as measured by the number of institutions represented among the co-organizers (in 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019 there were 23 co-organizers representing over 18 different institutions), the average attendance of each panel, and the balance of panels with regard to gender and rank. Over a hundred scholars attended the 2019 mini-conference and we again anticipate a large audience for 2020.
We invite you to submit an abstract for a proposed mini-conference on Chinese politics for APSA 2020, which will be held September 10-13, 2020 in San Francisco.
We welcome all methodological approaches. The conference is open to papers solely focused on China’s domestic politics or international relations, as well as those involving comparisons with other cases. We will group proposals into coherent panels. We will inform everyone who has submitted a proposal whether they have been selected for the mini-conference by the end of December, and notify panelists whether APSA has accepted our full conference proposal as soon as we hear in March.
If you would like to submit a proposal for the conference, please follow this link to send an email with your paper title and abstract attached by December 6 (midnight EST). *Please be sure to include your name and full contact information within your attached document as we will not be able to see your email address via this link.* Also, please email email@example.com to let us know if you are willing to serve as a discussant or chair.
China and the state of California have built deep and interdependent socioeconomic exchanges that reverberate across the globe, and these interactions make California a microcosm of the most important international relationship of the twenty-first century. In his book, journalist Matt Sheehan chronicles the real people who are making these connections.
