Getting China Right: Studying China in the (Post) COVID Era

The Getting China Right Conference Series is a Luce Foundation-funded series of workshops for political scientists studying China. The workshop brings together scholars at US universities who study China to discuss fieldwork strategies, data access and methodologies, collaboration, and troubleshooting problems related to the pandemic and travel constraints.

The Getting China Right Conference 2022 is hosted by the Lieberthal-Rogel Center for Chinese Studies at the University of Michigan, and continues the tradition set previously at the Chinese Politics Workshop at Harvard University in December 2017, the State of the Field in Chinese Politics Conference at Stanford University in December 2018, and China in the World Conference at Duke University in December 2019. The conference will take place on the 3rd-4th June 2022 at the University of Michigan—Ann Arbor.

This year’s Getting China Right Conference concentrates on Studying China in the (Post) Covid Era. The Covid-19 Pandemic disrupted so much of our professional and personal lives. The Pandemic Era has also brought with it changed political landscapes in Hong Kong and China that threaten to further disrupt and impede our research, collaborations with colleagues in China, and abilities to understand China in context. Please refer to the “Agenda” page for more detailed event information.
