Call for Papers —the 3rd International Chinese Sociological Association (ICSA) Annual Conference 

November 20-21, 2020

 Deadline for Submissions: October 2, 2020

Conference Venue: Virtual


We are pleased to announce that the 3rd Annual Conference of the International Chinese Sociological Association (ICSA) will be held online from November 20-21, 2020 (Hong Kong/Beijing Time). 


Since the first case of COVID-19 was identified in Wuhan, COVID-19 has been spreading rapidly across the world. Various public health measures, including school dismissals, public space closures, and city lockdowns, have been implemented in different societies. Those measures are affecting billions of people’s day-to-day lives and professional activities (including our own annual meeting at Oxford University).  In the global fight against COVID-19, the approach, feasibility, and effectiveness of outbreak response efforts and policy measures vary across sociocultural contexts and institutional regimes. The 2020 ICSA annual conference invites papers on the conference themed as Families, Communities, and Nation States in the Time of Global Crisis. Papers offering theoretical and empirical insights to explain the diverse responses to, and implications of, the current COVID-19 global crisis are particularly welcome. The conference also welcomes submissions on other topics of interest to the ICSA members.


Both complete papers and extended paper abstracts in English will be considered. Extended abstracts must contain sufficient details to suggest timely completion (normally, 5 pages or more). Please provide all authors’ names, organizational affiliations, and email addresses.


ICSA is also inviting graduate students to compete for the ICSA 2020 Nan Lin Graduate Student Paper Award. One paper (published or unpublished) will be selected and the award will be announced and presented with a plaque and a check of USD 500 (by mail). 


To be considered for the Nan Lin Paper Award, papers must be (1) authored by student(s) only, (2) in English, and (3) to be presented at the 2020 ICSA Conference. Student status must be valid as of the end of 2020. Only complete papers will be considered. Please mark *Nan Lin Paper Award* in the Subject Area when submitting online.
