CIW Seminar Series

The Australian Centre on China in the World is a humanities-led, social sciences-engaged, policy relevant research centre. We are particularly focussed on training and supporting upcoming Chinese Studies scholars, specialists and China-literate people.

The CIW Seminar Series offers an ideal forum for postgraduate and graduate scholars, along with our Centre's members and visitors, to present their work to a broader intellectual community. We will also use the seminar series to explicate and advance the Centre's major research themes.

Seminars are free and open to the public and will be held on Fridays from 11:30am - 1:00pm. Spaces are limited so registration is preferred to guarantee a seat.

For more information about the CIW-Seminar Series including venue location and to register your attendance, please contact Elisa Nesossi at
