Undergraduate Conference of Chinese Studies 2020

The Chinese Language Program recently hosted the Undergraduate Conference of Chinese Studies (UCCS) on Canvas from December 3rd to 24th. The conference invited young scholars to present new research, engage in discussions, and help build a scholastic community in China-related disciplines and adopted the form of a vlog-style exhibition, showcasing video-taped presentations.

Asian Studies PhD candidates as well as professors offered guidance and delivered presentations to further conversations.
