Registration for the Conference "Sinophobia in the Rise of China"

Set in the context of the new rise of China, this has invoked Yellow Peril discourses, while casting the global expansion of Chinese political economy in peculiar light.  But beyond literal meanings, one can argue that the history of Asian societies has always formed in its context of ongoing love/hate relations with China.  Sources of this tension are always changing.  Sinophobia is not a general racism but an abstract response to conditions that engender passions and politicizations.
