In order to encourage and support scholarly exchange and interaction within the field of early China studies, the Society holds an annual conference. This conference is held in conjunction with the Association for Asian Studies Annual Conference. The next meeting will be Thursday, 16 March 2017, in Toronto, Ontario. (Please note that this date is corrected from an earlier one.)


Like our previous meetings, this one will take place in conjunction with the Association for Asian Studies’ Annual Conference. Registration for the AAS event is not required to attend the SSEC meeting.


There is no charge to attend the SSEC conference, but if you are not a member of the Society, please consider supporting us by becoming a member. More information about joining the Society is here.
