2021 Confucius Institute Lecture/Seminar Call for Proposals

The University at Buffalo Confucius Institute (UBCI) invites UB faculty, departments, centers and institutes to recommend scholars or practitioners in China-related fields to give lectures or similar presentations in spring or fall 2021.

Presentations could be associated with a scheduled course, part of a department lecture/seminar series, or a conference/symposium of interest to a department or the general public. Presentations must be focused on a China-related topic (even if a course or conference is of a more general nature). UBCI usually sponsors 6-8 such events per year.

UBCI can cover travel, accommodations and a modest honorarium for the invited speaker. For online events, UBCI can cover allowable costs incurred by the department or the speaker and assist with publicity and logistical support, as needed.

To nominate a speaker for the 2021 Confucius Institute Lecture Series, please email Director Zhiqiang Liu ( with questions.
