Challenges and Opportunities in the Midst of Sino-US Political and Economic Tensions


China and United States are two giants in the east and the west. According to “U.S. Relations with China (1949-2018)”, the Sino-US “relationships have evolved from tense standoffs to a complex mix of intensifying diplomacy, growing international rivalry, and increasingly intertwined economies.” Politically and economically, the United States considers China a threat to US national security when China pursues its ‘China Dream’ and tries to build a ‘new type of great powers relationship with the U.S.’. With intensified trade war between the two countries, the tensions of the two giants have been escalated, which has affected a broad range of areas such as cultural exchange, peaceful collaboration, and intellectual mutual respect. Nevertheless, challenges and opportunities coexist, and it will be critical to examine both in the midst of political and economic tensions. Therefore, the 2019 annual conference of the Association of Chinese Professors of Social Sciences in the United States invites papers and panels that focus on, but are not limited to, the following topics:

1. Political and Economic Reform (政治和经济改革)
2. Educational Reform and Development (教育改革与发展)
3. Ethical Standard and Social Justice (伦理道德和社会公正)
4. Medical Service and Public Health (医疗服务于大众健康)
5. Environment and Civilization (环境和文明)
6. Chinese Language, Culture and Confucius Institute (中文教育,文化与孔子学院)
