ENGAGING CHINA:

SINO-AMERICAN RELATIONS, SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT, AND BEYOND

                              

The Association of Chinese Professors of Humanities and Social Sciences (U.S.)

In Cooperation with the Harvard-Yenching Institute,

Harvard Kennedy School of Government Ash Center,

and United Societies of China Studies (USCS)

November 5-7th, 2010

Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA

 

The Association of Chinese Professors of Humanities and Social Sciences in the United States (ACPSS), in cooperation with the Harvard-Yenching Institute, Harvard Kennedy School Ash Center, and United Societies of China Studies (USCS), will hold its 16th international conference at Harvard University from November 5th to 7th, 2010.

 

ACPSS (美国华人人文社科教授协会) is an academic organization founded in 1995 with its first annual international conference held at the University of Maryland at College Park. Since its inception, the ACPSS has adhered to its mission of vigorously promoting innovative idea exchange and engaging itself in research projects on China studies involving interdisciplinary collaboration among interested scholars across the world. The Harvard-Yenching Institute (HYI) was founded in 1928 with funding provided solely from the estate of Charles M. Hall "to conduct and provide research, instruction and publication in the culture of China and/or elsewhere in Continental Asia”. The institute is an independent foundation dedicated to advancing higher education in Asia in the humanities and social sciences, with special attention to the study of Asian culture. Today, HYI is one of the top research institutes focusing on China and other Asia countries. Harvard Kennedy School Ash Center was established in 2003. It advances excellence in governance and strengthens democratic institutions worldwide. Through its research, education, international programs and government innovations awards, the Center fosters creative and effective government problem solving and serves as a catalyst for addressing many of the most pressing needs of the world’s citizens. The mission of United Societies of China Studies (USCS) is primarily that of promoting academic information sharing, consultation, and coordinated projects of China studies among the member organizations in the United States as well as around the world. The USCS is composed of 5 member organizations (Association of Chinese Professors in Social Sciences, Chinese Communication Association, Chinese Historians in the United States,  Global Forum of Chinese Political Scientists, Association for Information Systems) and 5 affiliated institutions (Center for Asian Studies at the American University, Center for Asian Democracy at the University of Louisville, Center for International Strategic Studies at Peking University, School of International Studies at the People University of China, China Program at the Carter Center)

 

The theme of the conference, “Engaging China: Sino-American Relations, Sustainable Development, and Beyond”, is aimed to bring together a broad cross-discipline of scholars from the field of social sciences and humanities, to address the world’s most important, yet rather complex and multi-faceted, bilateral relationship of the 21st century that not only affects these two countries in almost every aspect of their domestic and diplomatic affairs but also the world as a whole in its sustainable economic, political, cultural, and environmental developments.
