The Contemporary China Graduate Colloquium (CCGC) is a graduate student-led research group at Princeton University dedicated to fostering and promoting research on all aspects of contemporary China. Founded in 2011, the CCGC is intended to bring together graduate students, post-docs, and faculty in the social sciences and related disciplines whose work or research interests are relevant to contemporary (post-1949) China. The primary purpose of the Colloquium is for graduate students, post-docs, and faculty to present to each other and receive feedback, although those not interested in presenting are also encouraged to participate. In addition, we occasionally invite guests from other universities and institutions to give public lectures on contemporary China. The CCGC is grateful for the support from the Paul and Marcia Wythes Center on Contemporary China, the East Asian Studies Program and the China and the World Program of the Woodrow Wilson School.

If you would like to join the CCGC mailing list, please send an email to with your name, department, and area of interest in contemporary Chinese issues.


CCGC is currently accepting proposals for presentations to be given during the Fall 2018 semester. We welcome proposals from graduate students, post-docs, and faculty who would like to share their research on contemporary (post-1949) China. The presentations will take place over lunch in a relatively informal workshop setting. Both works-in-progress and polished pieces are welcome. 

If you are interested in presenting this fall semester, please send an email to with the following information:

  • Your name, department and program affiliations, status (faculty, grad student, post-doc, etc.), and contact info

  • An abstract or 1-paragraph description of the proposed presentation (describing the topic and methods); 

  • Information about when (which month of the Fall semester) you ideally would like to present; and

  • Whether or not you would be interested in circulating a paper in advance (optional).
