I am organising a panel on education and research mobility between China and Europe for the upcoming 10th International Society for the Study of Chinese Overseas (ISSCO) conference (see attached for the CFP). Depending on the paper abstracts, I may have it focus on one of the following themes:
- Chinese student and/or academic mobility to Europe – papers can focus on issues during the study/research period, or afterwards
- The role of the Chinese state, institutions and people (staff and students) in the development of Chinese transnational education in Europe – examples including the establishment of Chinese university branch campuses, Confucius Institutes, other Chinese language schools)
If there is sufficient interest, it might also be possible to organise a panel on each of the above.
I hope that some of you would be interested in joining me. Please send me (firstname.lastname@example.org) a short description of your paper topic by end of next week (15.02.) if you do.
Feel free to forward my call to colleagues you know who might be interested. If you have suggestions regarding whom I can approach, please let me know. Thank you in advance!
There will be no registration fee, but all conference participants will pay for their own transportation and accommodation. More information on the conference can be found here: http://issco.info/
Hoping to hear from some of you soon!
Best new year wishes,
