Confucius Institute invites lecture/seminar proposals for 2020-21

Call for Lecture/Seminar Proposals
AY 2020-2021

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 fall 2020 and spring 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). In the past few years, UBCI sponsored 8 to 10 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 academic year 2020-21 Confucius Institute Lecture Series, please email Director Zhiqiang Liu ( or call 645-9090 with questions.

UBCI also welcomes proposals for China-related conferences and symposia at UB for calendar year 2021. Click here for more information.
