Critical China Studies

Critical China Studies

The Critical China Studies working group brings scholars of China together across a wide range of disciplines at the University of Toronto and in the Greater Toronto Area. Having completed five productive years (2008-2014), we return for the first year of a new cycle in which we have set the following objectives:
1.    We will strive to nurture dynamic graduate student participation by encouraging their presentation of research, conference papers, thesis proposals and chapters, and by facilitating in-depth communication on their presentations so that they receive feedback from peer students and faculty members;
2.    We will expand our academic interests and disciplinary approaches by presenting scholarship focusing on cross-regional, inter-cultural, and transnational aspects of China studies;
3.    We will complement our current strengths in the study of modern and contemporary China with research interests in pre-modern Chinese society and culture;
4.    We will explore the potential for collaboration with other JHI working groups.
