Initiated in 2014, the annual Stanford-Berkeley Graduate Student Conference on Premodern Chinese Humanities brings together graduate students from around the country and around the world who specialize in pre-modern Chinese studies.This national meeting of graduate students specializing in premodern Chinese studies aims to bring together young scholars from geographically distant institutions to present and discuss innovative research on China.

The conference, alternating sites each year between Stanford and Berkeley, will feature up to twelve competitively-selected graduate student presentations of original research on any aspect of premodern (technically, beginnings to 1911) Chinese humanistic culture, drawing on but not limited to the traditional disciplines of history, literature, religion, art, social sciences, and thought. We encourage proposals that explore new methodologies, utilize recent developments in digital technology, or reconfigure or cross disciplinary boundaries.
