The International Chinese Sociological Association (ICSA) was recently renamed from the North American Chinese Sociologists Association (NACSA), a nonprofit association that aims to promote social scientific research on Chinese societies, cultures, and populations in the world.  The association functions to foster scholarly exchanges and to facilitate a continuing dialogue among sociologists of Chinese and non-Chinese descent in North America, Pacific Asia, and elsewhere in the global community.  To achieve this goal, the NACSA organizes conferences, publishes newsletters, and carry out cooperative activities, including professional exchanges, joint research, information networks, and scholarly visits.

Call for Papers: The 2011 NACSA Annual Conference

Las Vegas Nevada, August 19, 2011

The 2011 NACSA Annual Conference will be held on August 19th in Las Vegas, Nevada, following the great tradition of our association to hold a one-day mini-conference prior to the annual meetings of the American Sociological Association (August 20-23, 2011). The aim of this year’s conference is broadly defined to be two-fold: to promote scholarly research on Chinese society, culture, economy, and immigrant life in the greater Chinese Diaspora, and to continue building bridges and guanxi among scholars of Chinese heritage and non-Chinese ancestry in North America, Asia, and other parts of the world.  Click here for more information.
