A conversation, hosted by the China Centre, with Biao Xiang (Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology), Ingrid d'Hooghe (Clingendael Institute and Leiden Asia Centre) and David Ownby (Université de Montréal).

How should China scholars respond to the rapidly changing relations between China and the West? What counts as effective knowledge?

In the West, public awareness of China is high and rising, perception about China is divided and even polarized, but knowledge about China is limited. How should we understand these changes, and how should we respond?

In particular, what can we do in order to make China studies more interactive and communicative – to communicate to the divided public and with stakeholders, including those in China, more effectively? This will require new ways of doing research and presenting knowledge.
