Conference Website:

Chinese Culture in the 21st Century and its Global Dimensions

The global impact of China lies as much in its soft cultural power as in its economic growth. Hence, the teaching of Chinese language, literature, history, philosophy, communication, film and art cannot be isolated from an understanding of the internationalization of Chinese culture in recent decades. With this in view, this conference will be organized to serve as a platform to promote the sharing of research ideas and the dissemination of research findings on Chinese culture in the 21st century and its global dimension.
Aims and Objectives:
  • Explore the contemporary significance of Chinese culture in its philosophical, literary and artistic manifestations;
  • Investigate how Chinese culture has been taught and studied in different parts of the world, particularly in East Asia, Southeast Asia, Europe, and North America; and
  • Facilitate the study of the increasingly important role that Chinese culture plays in the global world
We welcome submissions that include, but not limited to, the following:
Chinese studies (culture, philosophy, history and literature) as an academic discipline in the West
Chinese culture in the 21st century world
Global Chinese literature
the translations of Chinese culture in the West
Chinese drama and Western stage art
