The 2018 Annual Conference of the International Chinese Sociological Association (ICSA) & Princeton Research Network on Contemporary China (PRCC)
Princeton’s Paul and Marcia Wythes Center on Contemporary China establishes a collaborative research network on contemporary China. Members of the network include other research centers or institutions with similar missions or individual scholars with similar research interests. For the first annual conference taking place August 2018, the Princeton Research Network on Contemporary China will be a joint venture with the International Chinese Sociological Association (ICSA). The network is interdisciplinary, including sociology, economics, political science, psychology, demography, and history. Two annual conferences are held, with one at Princeton and one in China.
The International Chinese Sociological Association (ICSA) was recently renamed from the North American Chinese Sociologists Association (NACSA), a nonprofit organization established in 1981 to promote social scientific research on Chinese societies, cultures, and populations in the world. ICSA will continue to NACSA’s missions through organizing research symposiums and annual conferences to facilitate the interaction and collaboration between scholars in North American and scholars in the Greater China Region and elsewhere.
We are pleased to announce that the Annual Conference of the ICSA/PRCC will be held on August 10th, 2018 in Princeton University, preceding the Annual Meeting of the American Sociological Association on August 11-14 in Philadelphia, PA. The conference will be hosted and partially sponsored by the Paul and Marcia Wythes Center on Contemporary China of the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies (PIIRS) (https://ccc.princeton.edu/).
