& Asia's Responses

Conference and PhD Course

Welcome to China’s Rise/Asia’s Responses Conference on 10–11 June 2021. This conference is a joint conference of the 15th Biennial Conference for Nordic Association for China Studies (NACS) & NIAS-Nordic Institute of Asian Studies' 14th Annual Nordic NIAS Council Conference. During this two-day interdisciplinary conference, we are welcoming participants to share their findings on how the rise of China occurs, and how China’s rise is perceived, and how different states and societal actors have reacted to it in Asia. Evidence of sinicization, de-sinicization and re-sinicization will be identified and studied.

The conference runs from 10 to 11 June and will consist of keynotes, panels, and roundtables, while also reserving time for informal discussions and networking. Prior to the conference is a two day PhD course (8-9 June). Participants in the PhD course are expected to also take part in the conference (with or without a paper presentation).

This conference acknowledges the generous financial support from Joel Toivola Foundation.
