The QCSS encourages comprehensive as well as profound discussion on a variety of China-related issues through the presentation of papers. The purpose of this seminar is to promote the exchange of ideas between young scholars on China studies, as well as to incorporate scholarly critique and constructive feedback on research in progress. Every year, a number of speakers will present their work at QCSS, among which generally half will be junior faculty members, and the other half will be senior Ph.D. candidates. To inspire a productive discussion on each research, the speaker will receive valuable feedback from other faculty members who serve as discussants, their fellow speakers, and the audience.
The QCSS aims to provide an excellent platform to explore broadly on a wide range of topics and rigorous methodology applied on China studies. Themes include but are not limited to the development, governance, economy, society, politics, and public policy of China. Studies that employ frontier empirical methods or game-theoretical models, and of other innovative and rigorous research design are all welcomed. Therefore, we sincerely welcome the participation of scholars from any discipline who are interested in China studies. We are calling paper for QCSS-3, which will take place on April 26, 2019 at New York University (Washington Square Campus). Please see QCSS-3 NYU 2019 for call for papers and other details.
