Each gathering of the Modern China Seminar takes place on a Thursday in the International Affairs Building (IAB) on the ninth floor in Room 918 from 7:00pm to 9:00pm. The speaker's conference paper is pre-circulated at least one week prior to our meeting by means of a password-protected link on our website. On the evening of the seminar, the speaker, discussant, co-chairs and special guests gather in IAB 918 at 6:30pm for a casual dinner. The seminar provides dinner for the speaker and discussant, and everyone else brings their own "brown bag". The discussion begins at 7:00pm. One of our co-chairs gives a short introduction, then the speaker has 10 minutes to give context for his or her project. The discussant then offers comments for 15 minutes, followed by the speaker's response to the discussant's remarks. We then open the floor for broader discussion until we end at 9:00pm. The conference room is fully equipped with audio-visual technology for PCs and Macs. All you need to bring is a virus-free USB, but anyone is welcome to connect their laptop to the projector for a presentation. For any questions, comments or requests, please contact the rapporteur.
Sessions are open only to members, associates, and invited guests.
