Call for Papers: China-Workshop „Iserlohn 2023“

Schwerte, Germany
22-23rd Jul 2023

Deadline: 10th May 2023
The “Iserlohn Network” is a loose circle of young social scientists working on China. Our annual workshop will be held from 22 to 23 July 2023 at Haus Villigst near the town of Schwerte.

This year, we focus on “Social Practices in Contemporary Chinese Studies”. In academia, our work often consists of documenting, analysing and classifying the behaviour, agency, and activities of individuals and groups. Which actions or actors in your research field arouse your interest and why? Where do you see yourselves in the research process, what is the starting point for your study, and in which direction are you drawn? The presentations should address the social practices examined in your project and/or the research practice guiding your inquiries. We hope that this broad topic speaks to many of you and are looking forward to a diverse range of contributions!

The workshop provides a forum for young scholars who would like to present and discuss their PhD theses, post-doctoral, or other research in a casual environment with other social scientists exploring China.… Read more ⤻
