Organized by The Carter Center and The Global Times
The People’s Republic of China
The Impact of US-China Educational Exchanges on U.S.-China Bilateral Relations
In 2016, the Third Forum for Young Chinese and American Scholars will take place in China. The organizers invite young scholars from China and the U.S. to present their research findings that examine the past, present and the future of the relationship between educational exchange and U.S.-China bilateral relations.
BACKGROUND OF THE FORUM FOR YOUNG CHINESE AND AMERICAN SCHOLARS
In October, 2015, the second Young Chinese and American Scholars Forum took place at The Carter Center in Atlanta, Georgia. Scholars from both countries shared their research on the topic “How Will the Future International Order Be Shaped by Past and Current U.S.-China interactions?” Participating senior scholars also held a lively dialogue with Professor Lyle Goldstein, author of the recently published Meeting China Halfway: How to Defuse the Emerging US-China Rivalry.
THE THIRD FORUM, 2016
While national leaders in both capitals disagree other on many policy issues, educational exchanges are rapidly changing the landscape of the bilateral relations in unprecedented ways. The special relationship between the U.S. and China before 1949 rested heavily on a broad foundation of cultural and educational linkages. Today, massive Sino-American educational engagement again plays a complex role within the broader bilateral relationship. This Forum will invite young US and Chinese scholars to present their research on all aspects of these bilateral educational exchanges and how they have influenced the dynamics of the complex relationship between the two nations in the past 36 years. Researches into earlier periods of U.S.-China educational exchanges are also welcome.
PhD candidates, postdoctoral fellows, assistant and associate professors, think tank analysts, researchers and young professionals outside of academia under the age of 40 are all encouraged to send in their proposals.
