This Friday and Saturday, September 27-28, UConn-Hartford will be hosting the “Key Texts in Modern Chinese Political Thought: Late Qing to Republican China” conference.
The conference focuses on selected “key texts” in Chinese political thought from roughly the first half of the twentieth century. Conference papers will analyze texts in terms of their sources and argumentation, their position in the discursive field, and their contribution to political theory. The conference as a whole asks what counts as political theory, what political theorists might learn from China, and how to construct a larger list of key texts from China.
Alongside Thomas Fröhlich (Universität Hamburg), Professor Peter Zarrow (UConn) has organized the conference. The conference is co-sponsored by the Chiang Ching-kuo Foundation and the University of Connecticut.
All are invited to attend, but space is limited, so registration is required, and the conference organizers will get back to you. The registration webpage also links to the conference program. Registration and program can be found here.
