Call for Papers
The Committee for Promotion of Ming-Qing Studies, Academia Sinica, is pleased to announce a call for papers for the International Conference on Ming-Qing Studies to be held at Academia Sinica from December 13–15, 2023. The Conference seeks significant contributions in all major fields of Ming-Qing studies, so as to provide a forum for sharing cutting-edge developments within the discipline. All participants will be expected to cover their own travel costs (including airfare), but free accommodation will be provided for four nights, with the exception of participants from northern Taiwan (overseas presenters may participate virtually). In addition, lunch, as well as a welcome banquet on December 13, will be provided during the conference.
Interested participants are invited to submit panel or individual paper proposals via the Conference Submission System by May 20, 2023.

Panels should include a maximum of five participants (including the moderator, paper presenters and discussants) with a maximum of four papers presented. Individual paper proposals should include author information and an abstract of the paper not exceeding 250 characters. Papers in English, Japanese or Korean are accepted, but participants are asked to present during the Conference in either Chinese or English.
