How to understand the current trade war between the PRC and the USA? How to assess the four decades old American policy of engaging and changing China? Is the Sino­ American relationship heading from trade war towards a new Cold War? What are the strengths and weaknesses of the rising Chinese power? This public lecture by a leading scholar in the study of contemporary Chinese politics will shed some light on those critical issues between the two largest economies in the world.

Dr. Fei-Ling Wang is a professor of international affairs at Georgia Institute of Technology and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. His most recent book is The China Order: Centralia, World Empire, and the Nature of Chinese Power (2017), which has been translated into Chinese.

Sixth Annual Meeting of the International Consortium for China Studies @ The Carter Center, Atlanta, USA
May 31 – Jun 1 all-day
Sixth Annual Meeting of the International Consortium for China Studies @ The Carter Center, Atlanta, USA | Atlanta | Georgia | United States

The sixth annual meeting of the International Consortium for China Studies (ICCS) will be held at The Carter Center, Atlanta, GA on May 31 and June 1, 2019. This is an invitation to member institutions of ICCS to submit applications for presentation/ attendance.

This meeting will be hosted by the China Research Center of Atlanta, the China Program & the Latin-America and Caribbean Program of The Carter Center and the Institute of Developing Nations of Emory University.

The academic planning of the 2019 ICCS meeting is in the hands of a planning committee comprising Hanchao Lu (Georgia Institute of Technology, history), Miaojie Yu (Peking University, economics), Xiaobo Zhang (Peking University, economics), John Knight (Oxford University, economics), Lina Song (Nottingham University, sociology), Philipp Boeing (Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW), economics), Yawei Liu (The Carter Center), Stephen Herschler (Oglethorpe University) and representatives from other hosting institutions in Atlanta. Submissions will be will vetted by this committee.

The 2019 meeting will focus on topics relating to “The Rise of China and Its Impact on Developing Countries”. We would like scholars to dwell on the central question of how the rise of China is influencing the economic, political and social institutions in developing countries in the world and if the growth of China in the past 40 years represents a new alternative for sustainable development that defies the so-called Washington Consensus.

We have a preference that there should be important themes which could be of interest to more than one discipline. Accordingly, without wishing to discourage any paper which fits the general title, we could have a particular interest in papers which would fit (even loosely) into one, or more than one, of the following themes:

  • China and Latin America • China and Africa
  • China and Asia
  • BRI and its challenges
  • China and debt trap, debt diplomacy and predatory economics
  • Soft power vs. sharp power
  • US-China relationship and a new cold war
  • China’s role in international trade and investment
  • Made in China 2025 and its pitfalls
  • Lessons of China’s 40-year of opening up and reform

Presenters are invited, where appropriate, to discuss the policy implications of their academic analyses. Each member institution of ICCS is invited to nominate one or two representatives to present a paper.

We request that you provide the following information to help with our preparation:

  1. For each paper: title, abstract (at least 200 words), presenter’s name, title and institution
  2. A brief introduction to your institution (unless this year’s description does not need to be altered). We will compile the entries and distribute a hard copy of the descriptions of all institutional members of ICCS
  3. A link to your official website (unless provided this year). We have created a web page for ICCS (http://iccs.nsd.edu.cn/), which will contain links to all institutional members.
  4. For each attendee from your institution: name, e-mail, short bio (unless provided this year), photo, arrival and departure dates.

The meeting will be held at The Carter Center in Atlanta. The host member institution (China Research Center) will provide lodging for two nights (May 30 and May 31, 2019) for those who do not have other funds to cover these costs. The host institution will also provide five meals for the conferment presenters.

We welcome a few scholars from other institutions to present at the conference but you will be responsible for your own lodging during the meeting.

Application should be submitted to The ICCS secretariat, National School of Development (Jessie Dian Cheng, e-mail: iccs_secretariat@nsd.pku.edu.cn) AND the Carter Center (Dr. Yawei Liu, email: yawei.liu@cartercenter.org) no later than Monday, February 18, 2019.

International Conference on the “Xi Jinping Effect” @ University of Alberta, Canada
Jun 26 – Jun 28 all-day

XiCFP: International Conference on the “Xi Jinping Effect”

Does President Xi Jinping’s leadership mark the dawn of a newera for China?

In what ways has his rule transformed “politics as usual” in the People’s Republic?

Since Xi’s elevation to General Secretary of the Chinese CommunistParty in 2012 and to the Chinese presidency in the following year, he has pursued policies with far-reaching ramifications. His unprecedented anti-corruption campaign, effort to consolidate authority leading up to the 19th Party Congress, widespread suppression of political dissent, and initiatives to build new linkages between China and global markets are indicative of the momentous nature of Xi’s ascent in Chinese andworld politics. Meanwhile, his nationalist vision has also extended deep into official cultural policy, limiting education in English language and foreign cultures at the secondary and post- secondary levels, while extending patriotic education in the Chinese classical tradition.

From June 26-28, 2019, the China Institute at the University of Alberta will host a group of international scholars to present interdisciplinary and multi-disciplinary research at a conference on the “Xi Jinping Effect” in China to beheld in Banff.

The conference will cover a range of topics. However, papers on the following subjects are of particular interest:

  • Xi’s engagement with China’s classical traditions, and how those are turned to political use in his published writings
  • Xi Jinping’s leadership in comparative perspective
  • Reforms to the state structure and changes to norms governing leadership succession
  • The anti-corruption campaign and its impact on political and economic development
  • Central-local relations and the centralization of political authority
  • Propaganda work and media censorship
  • Ideological control and monitoring of Chinese academic institutions
  • Popular support for Xi’s government and changing patterns of political participation
  • Nationalism, ethnic policy, and United Front work
  • International trade, sustainable development, and poverty alleviation
  • The Asia Infrastructure Investment Bank and the Belt Road Initiative
  • Sovereignty disputes concerning, for example, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and the South China Sea
  • The “export” of the norms and practices of Chinese politics to the developing world and to international organizations
  • Promoting the export of Chinese cultural goods while limiting the reach of foreign cultural influences
  • New narratives concerning Chinese aspirations for global leadership

Co-organizers Ashley Esarey and Rongbin Han encourage the submission of abstracts from scholars in any discipline in the humanities and the social sciences, with the aim of revising select conference papers for an edited volume published by a university press. Interested researchers should send abstracts of 400 words or less to christine.bertok@ualberta.ca by January 21, 2019. For questions about the Xi Effect conference or book project, email Ashley Esarey at esarey@ualberta.ca. Notifications of acceptance will go out on February 4. The China Institute will provide participants with lodging for three nights in Banff, meals during the conference, and limited travel expenses, when necessary.
