We are pleased to announce a call for applications for a June 2016 training program in Guangzhou:
From Empirical Research to Theorization: Contributions of the Study of China to Political Science and Political Theory
Held at Sun Yat-Sen University, Guangzhou, China from June 12-21, 2016
Application Deadline: April 10, 2016
Sponsored by the Harvard-Yenching Institute and the School of Government, Sun Yat-sen University, in partnership with the School of International Relations and Public Affairs, Fudan University, and the School of Government, Nanjing University
Taking empirical research as its foundation, this workshop provides an international academic platform to further advance the study of Chinese politics in the direction of conceptualization and theorization. This program will invite scholars from North America, Europe, and Greater China (including Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan) to present research on topics ranging from democratic accountability and policy-making, collective action and social protest, nationalism and ethnicity, good governance, authoritarian resilience and regime change, to the concept of “all under heaven” (tianxia guannian) and the nation-state system. The training program is open to junior scholars and doctoral students who are dedicated to the study of Chinese politics.
