Meeting Description:

Conference Title:
Chinese Culture in the 21st Century and its Global Dimensions


The global impact of China lies as much in its soft cultural power as in its economic growth. Hence, the teaching of Chinese language, literature, history, philosophy, communication, film and art cannot be isolated from an understanding of the internationalization of Chinese culture in recent decades. With this in view, this conference will be organized to serve as a platform to promote the sharing of research ideas and the dissemination of research findings on Chinese culture in the 21st century and its global dimension.

Aims and Objectives:

1. Explore the contemporary significance of Chinese culture in its philosophical, literary and artistic manifestations
2. Investigate how Chinese culture has been taught and studied in different parts of the world, particularly in East Asia, Southeast Asia, Europe, and North America
3. Facilitate the study of the increasingly important role that Chinese culture plays in the global world

Call for Papers:

We welcome submissions that include, but not limited to, the following:

1. Chinese studies (culture, philosophy, history and literature) as an academic discipline in the West
2. Chinese culture in the 21st century world
3. Global Chinese literature
4. the translations of Chinese culture in the West
5. Chinese drama and Western stage art
6. Chinese film in the global context
7. The reinterpretations of Chinese culture in Mainland China in the 21st century
8. Innovative ways of studying and researching Chinese humanities
9. The influx of Western methods and ideas and the growth of new forms of culture in China
10. The rise of cultural industries in China and new forms of Chinese culture
11. The reception of Chinese culture, traditional and contemporary, in academia in the West and other parts of Asia

* Selected papers will be considered for publication.
