Quantitative China Studies Seminar 2022

at New York University

Understanding China with frontier quantitative methods

The Quantitative China Studies Seminar (QCSS) is an academic event that brings together scholars who apply cutting-edge empirical methods and formal modeling to study Chinese politics. Co-organized by the Wilf Family Department of Politics and the Center on U.S.-China Relations at New York University (NYU), this group has met annually since 2017. The seminar invites global young scholars studying Chinese politics to present their ongoing work, who receive in-depth discussions from distinguished scholars from NYU and other reputed institutes.

The QCSS aims to achieve two goals: First, we are committed to providing an excellent platform for scholars to explore a wide range of topics by applying rigorous research methods, using China as an empirical context. Themes include but are not limited to political economy, political behaviors, international politics, and other subfields. Studies that employ frontier empirical methods, game-theoretical models, and other rigorous research methods are all welcomed. Second, we are also dedicated to stimulating conversations on how research on Chinese politics can contribute to the general theories of political science.

Building on the success of five QCSS events from 2017 to 2021, the sixth Quantitative China Studies Seminar (QCSS-2022) will be held in person on April 29, 2022 (EST).
