ICSA Nan Lin Graduate Student Paper Award Fund

ICSA_tradDear Friends,

We are writing to encourage you to contribute to the ICSA Nan Lin Graduate Student Paper Award Fund in the honor of Dr. Nan Lin.  The fund will be used to reward young scholars engaging in innovative research on Chinese societies.  Our fundraising target is $20,000.

Dr. Nan Lin is Oscar L. Tang Professor Emeritus of Sociology at Duke University.  As a world-renowned and highly respected sociologist, he has published substantive seminal work and mentored multiple generations of scholars in and beyond the research field of Chinese societies for about five decades.  He especially played a vital role in the rebirth of sociology in China in the late 1970s, and has made significant contributions to the development of sociology in the Greater China region.

Dr. Nan Lin is also the founder and the inaugural President of the North American Chinese Sociologists Association (NACSA) from 1981 to 1990, which was renamed as the International Chinese Sociological Association (ICSA) in spring 2018.  The Board of ICSA unanimously approved to rename the “Graduate Student Paper Award” as the “Nan Lin Graduate Student Paper Award” in spring 2018.  The rationale for this change is to recognize Nan’s pioneer and significant contributions to the association and to the research area on Chinese societies, and to inspire the research endeavors of future generations of young scholars working on Chinese societies.

Annually the ICSA Graduate Student Paper Award Committee selects one graduate student paper and announces the award at the dinner of the ICSA annual conference.  The ICSA Nan Lin Graduate Student Paper Award Fund will be used to recognize and reward emerging young scholars in the study of Chinese societies through a cash prize of 500 USD.  ICSA will use the fund as the principal to yield bank interests to pay for the cash prize.

To reach the fundraising goal in Dr. Nan Lin’s honor, we are writing to his colleagues, collaborators, students, postdocs, and friends to make the push.  Nan has been a colleague, mentor and friend to many of us throughout our careers.  He has befriended and adopted us into his intellectual family.  We know that you have many opportunities to make worthy charitable donations.  We hope that you will consider supporting the ICSA community in honoring Nan’s contributions.  You do not need to be an ICSA member in order to make a donation.  We will gladly publish the names of contributors on the ICSA website.

You can make your donation in two ways.  You can donate online via PayPal Giving Fund (https://www.paypal.com/us/fundraiser/charity/1705707).  PayPal covers all fees.  After you donate online, you will receive your PayPal Giving Fund tax receipt by email.

The other way is to mail a check (with “International Chinese Sociological Association” on the pay-to-order line and “Nan Lin Award Fund” on the memo line) to the following address.  After receiving your check, ICSA will send you a receipt by mail.

Call for Papers — 2018 ICSA Asian Conference

Forty Years of China’s Reform and Social Change

The 2018 Asian Conference of the International Chinese Sociological Association (ICSA)

Hong Kong ● December 19-20, 2018

Deadline for Submissions: October 14, 2018

HKUST

Conference Venue: HKUST Jockey Club Institute for Advanced Study, Lo Ka Chung Building, Lee Shau Kee Campus, The Hong Kong University of Science & Technology, Clear Water Bay, Kowloon, Hong Kong, China

We are pleased to announce that the first Asian Conference of the ICSA will be held on December 19-20, 2018 at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Hong Kong SAR, China. The conference will be organized by the Center for Applied Social and Economic Research (http://caser.ust.hk/en/) and co-sponsored by the School of Humanities and Social Science (http://www.shss.ust.hk/) and the Institute of Advanced Study (http://ias.ust.hk/web/ias/eng/).

The program committee welcomes submissions on the conference theme: Forty Years of China’s Reform and Social Change. Papers offering comparative perspectives on the conference theme and of interest to ICSA members are also welcome. The committee is particularly interested in papers that analyze multiple waves of Chinese General Social Surveys (CGSS) or China Family Panel Surveys (CFPS) to address the following topics but not limited to these topics: 1) Community and local governance; 2) Education; 3) Gender, marriage and family; 4) Health and Well-being; 5) Migration, urbanization and development; 6) Stratification and inequalities; 7) Culture and value changes; 8) Organizations, social movements.

The International Chinese Sociological Association (ICSA) was recently renamed from the North American Chinese Sociologists Association (NACSA), a nonprofit organization established in 1981 to promote social scientific research on Chinese societies, cultures, and populations in the world. ICSA will continue to NACSA’s missions through organizing research symposiums and annual conferences to facilitate the interaction and collaboration between scholars in North American and scholars in the Greater China Region and elsewhere.

The first Annual Conference of ICSA was successfully held on August 10, 2018 at Princeton University. We received 163 abstract submissions. A total of 83 papers were presented in 19 panels of the one-day conference, with over 100 scholars and students joining us from 66 institutions all over the world.

Instructions for Paper Submissions

Online submissions will be made through the ICSA Paper Submission Site at https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/ICSAAC2018. The submission site will open on September 14, 2018 and close on October 14, 2018.

Full paper submissions are particularly welcome. In case only abstracts or extended abstracts are available, they must be sufficiently detailed to allow the conference organizers to judge the merits of the paper. Typically, extended abstracts consist of statement of research question (and the underlying theory, if appropriate), the data and research methods, and the expected findings.

At the time of submission, if there are multiple coauthors, one must be identified as the author who will present the paper. This can be revised until the program is finalized on December 3, 2018.

Upon approval of the organizing committee, travel allowance will be awarded to a selected number of graduate students or junior scholars on the basis of merit and need.
