XVII EACS Conference
The XVIIth Biennial Conference of the European Association for Chinese Studies (EACS) was held at Lund University, Sweden, between 6-10 August 2008.
The conference title was ‘China Centre Stage’, reflecting the momentous event that would take place during August 2008 in China, namely the XXIXth Olympic Games. The conference also commemorated the 60th anniversary of the first meeting in Cambridge of the EACS forerunner, the Junior Sinologues.
The EACS conference sets out to offer a platform for the presentation and discussion of recent research and new ideas in the entire range of Chinese studies. Scholars from Europe and beyond are invited to attend and contribute to making the conference an occasion of lively scholarly exchange and innovation in European and international Chinese studies.
