Event: Young Scholars' Forum in Chinese Studies 2021
The Young Scholars' Forum in Chinese Studies 2021, co-organised by the CCK Asia-Pacific Centre for China Studies and Institute of Chinese Studies, was held on 27–28 May 2021 at The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK). This year, the forum was conducted in a hybrid mode, in which the discussants and local participants attended in person while participants from other countries were invited to join via Zoom. The new mode had drawn about 135 audiences including CUHK colleagues, students, alumni and the public. The audience asked questions during the Q&A sessions via the chatroom function in Zoom, which facilitates the discussion and interaction between the participants and the audience.
The forum aims to nurture young scholars in Chinese Studies and strengthen their academic networks. With the theme "Intellectual Networks and Knowledge Production: Remapping Chinese Studies", this year's forum had invited a total of 26 young scholars to present their research papers. The papers were divided into 8 panels and scheduled over a period of two days. Topics of interest include but are not restricted to:

1. Rise and fall of schools of thought in any period of the history of China and the Chinese;
2. Spread of key concepts and genealogies of knowledge of/ about China in local and global contexts;
3. (Re)interpretation, dissemination, appropriation and reception of classics and important texts;
4. Knowledgeable communities: e.g. intellectuals, scholars, officials, literati, craftsmen, connoisseurs and more;
5. Groups that were marginalised by traditional beliefs ;
6. Methods for studying intellectual networks and knowledge production in Chinese studies.

CUHK faculty members including Professor Lai Chi Tim from the Department of Cultural and Religious Studies, Professor Poon Shuk Wah from the Department of History, Professor Ye Jia from the Department of Translation and Professor Tsui Lik Hang from the Department of Chinese and History at the City University of Hong Kong, were invited to serve as discussants. This year's forum received 184 applications and 33 applicants were invited. A postponement had resulted in seven withdrawals out of the 33 selected applicants. Participants came from different countries, including 13 from mainland China, three from the U.S.A, three from Europe, three from other countries in Asia and six from Hong Kong, reflecting the forum's effort to enhance international communication in Chinese studies.
