The China Health, Welfare and Environment (CHEW) network cordially invite you to participate in our 2019 conference on Chinese ‘techno-futures’.
The conference will take place over two days on May 31 and June 1 2019 at St Antony’s College (opening keynote) and the University of Oxford China Centre (afternoon, day one; morning and afternoon, day two).
Keynote addresses from Professor Susan Greenhalgh (Harvard University) and Professor Biao Xiang (University of Oxford) will address the role of artificial intelligence in new forms of techno-scientific governance, and the phenomenon of migrations of reproduction in China.
Panels will focus on environmental governance, the role of technology in health and welfare, urban futures, and rural transitions, and feature a broad range of scholars from China, Europe, and the UK.
Keynote addresses and panel sessions are open to everyone, free of charge, and we welcome people to attend as many or as few as they would like. We also encourage scholars and students that are not specialists on China to attend. Registration is not required, but we encourage you to express your interest and spread the word on the Facebook event page below.
The conference is supported by the Oxford School of Geography and the Environment’s Economy and Society, Political Worlds, and Technological Life research clusters, as well as the Oxford School of Global and Area Studies, the ESRC, St Antony’s College, and the University of Oxford China Centre.
