Background

The China Academic Network on Gender evolved out of the workshop ‘Refracting Gender in Modern China’, which three then PhD students organised to connect young academics who did research about gender in China.

The network is based at the Université libre de Bruxelles, in the capital of Europe, as an opportunity to expand Chinese studies footprint in Europe. It also benefits from the unique institutional setup of ULB’s Maison des Sciences Humaines, home to both Chinese and Gender Studies Research Centres, EASt and STRIGES.

CHANGE 这一网络平台项目萌生2017年的伦敦。彼时三个博士生创办的“新声音新视野”论坛为这一项目的发展提供了契机。现平台挂靠在布鲁塞尔自由大学人文社科学院东亚研究所跨学科性别研究中心下,坐落在欧洲的中心,将为推动中国研究在欧洲的发展提供更好的机会。
