Reimagining China Studies in North America: Current Conditions and Prospects Roundtable
This roundtable tackles the topic of reimagining China Studies in North America in a new era. Geopolitical tensions between China and the West (United States in particular) were already rising ominously as the pandemic spread, as such the field literally does not look the same now and down the road. In the meantime, the horizon of topics of study and methods has significantly broadened, and cooperation with scholars in China has been raised to a higher and more productive level over the past two decades. Against this backdrop, the Luce/ACLS Program in China Studies organized the China Studies Advisory Group in 2020-21, which identified issues, conducted research, drew implications, and made recommendations in a report that summarizes the Group’s findings and reflections, namely, China Studies in North America: A report on survey research by the Luce/ACLS Advisory Group. The Report came out in May 2021; this roundtable is meant to introduce this discussion to the Canadian context, and help reflect on evolution of this field, anticipate future demand and challenges, as well as address diversity and inclusion in China Studies in Canada.
