British Association for Chinese Studies Annual Conference 8-9 September 2010 CALL FOR PAPERS The British Association for Chinese Studies (BACS) will hold its annual conference at the University of Bristol, 8-9 September 2010, at which Professor Jonathan Spence has agreed to be a keynote speaker. We welcome panel and paper proposals in any field of Chinese Studies. We are especially keen to attract panel proposals that bring a group of scholars together to discuss a major issue in the study of China. BACS conferences are open to both members and non- members, and we welcome participants from all countries. Abstracts from past conferences can be seen on the Association’s website (http://www.bacsuk.org.uk) under BACS Conferences. PAPER SUBMISSION PROCEDURE: All proposals should include: name(s), affiliation and contact details (email). Proposals for panels should include: list of proposed presenters; list of titles of individual papers; abstracts of each paper (up to 250 words); proposed chair/moderator; discussant, if relevant. Proposals for papers should include: title of paper and abstract of up to 250 words. All proposals should be submitted BY 30 APRIL 2010 to email@example.com Panels and papers will be selected according to academic merit, and BACS will inform proposers of the outcome of the assessment in the week commencing 10 May 2010.
