Mission

Created in partnership between the Université libre de Bruxelles, School of Oriental and African Studies, and King’s College London, the China Academic Network on Gender (CHANGE) brings together postgraduate students and early career researchers from the humanities and social sciences who are dedicated to researching gender issues in China.

Our transnational network provides a specialized platform, built for and by members to facilitate networking and communication. The forum will be used to organize biennial themed conferences at partner universities. It aims to publicize members research papers, create synergies for sharing sources, best practices and building an international community to facilitate scholarly exchange and research on gender and China.

In particular, our network aims to provide a platform for younger scholars to share ideas and resources. It is designed to provide them with an online forum and community, which is built and driven by its members, enabling postgraduate students and early career researchers to connect to other scholars working in their field.

CHANGE 是一个专注于研究中国的性别议题的网站,目前由布鲁塞尔自由大学(ULB)、伦敦大学亚非学院(SOAS)及伦敦大学国王学院(KCL)共同承办。我们希望这一网站可以为研究相关议题的学者提供一个专业的平台,以分享学术意见和建立学术联系。

在这一初衷下, 每隔两年,CHANGE将举办一次国际性年会。同时,我们将通过多种途径和活动来推广会员的研究文章,创造同行间协同共享资源及实践的机会,构建更具国际性的学术研究群体,从而推动有关中国及性别议题等领域的学术研究。

尤需强调的是,我们致力于为刚刚开始学术事业的学者们提供一个分享想法和资源的平台,一个展开讨论的和寻找学术伙伴的园地,让研究生和青年学者能够与其领域里的更多学者进行交流合作。CHANGE愿与各位共成长。
