=20 =20 =20 Calls for papers =20 =20 Thematic workshop =E2=80=9CInterethnic relations: Chinese migrants and = their European host societies=E2=80=9D =20 (part of the COST Action project CHERN - China in Europe network) =20 Dates: 15-16 October 2020 =20 Venue: Central European University, Budapest, Hungary=20 =20 Deadline for Abstracts: 15th July 2020 =20 =20 Our workshop interrogates the nature of interethnic relations between = Chinese migrants and their European host societies through an = intersectional lens, paying particular attention to the interplay = between other social categories such as class, gender, and age. How do = categories of social stratification persist or cease to shape social = status in migration? What are the dominant forces shaping racial = distinctions? Situating the abstract notion of interethnic relations in = particular domains within the different national contexts =E2=80=93 such = as labour, education and housing =E2=80=93 we also focus on the temporal = dimension of interethnic relations, now acquiring a special interest in = the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. For example, if class proved to be = capable of overwriting race in the case of affluent =E2=80=9Cgolden visa = migrants,=E2=80=9D how does the virus (that bears =E2=80=9CChinese=E2=80=9D= as an epithet in the official discourse of the American president) = transform this newly acquired prestige attributed to power and wealth? = In order to identify and analyze processes of exclusion and inclusion in = European societies, we ground our interest in actual spaces in which = interethnic relations take form, such as construction sites, factories, = restaurants, and other social institutions where majority-minority = dynamics play off. How are hierarchies becoming established, taking into = consideration the above-mentioned aspects? Another related set of = questions pertains to the extension of ethnicity to non-human objects. = How and why do certain economic activities acquire ethnic meanings (e.g. = =E2=80=9CChinese investment,=E2=80=9D etc.) and under what circumstances = does their ethnic dimension become salient? We invite both = methodological and empirical contributions to the discussion. =20 =20 =20 Applicants should send an abstract of ca. 300 words on the relevant = topic no later than 15th July 2020 to Fanni Beck, CEU: = Beck_Fanni@phd.ceu.edu =20 =20 Thematic workshop: =E2=80=9CChinese Tourists in Europe: - Economic, = Social, and Cultural Implications=E2=80=9D =20 (part of the COST Action project CHERN - China in Europe network) =20 Dates: 15-16 October 2020 =20 Venue: Central European University, Budapest, Hungary=20 =20 Deadline for abstracts: 15th July 2020 =20 =20 =20 The People=E2=80=99s Republic of China, long regarded as the last = frontier for the tourism industry, has been a latecomer in leisure = travel and tourism. Recently, the trends in Chinese outbound tourism = have changed considerably. The number of Chinese tourists in Europe has = reached new heights in 2019 and new destination markets have been = explored. This has been caused by the increase of average income, = globalization and a new lifestyle of Chinese citizens. =20 =20 Europe has been one of the fastest-growing destinations of PRC = tourists. In the first half of 2019, a number of new flight routes to = Europe were opened, with direct flights, making it more convenient for = Chinese tourists to travel to Europe. As the demand for outbound travel = in China increases, and more Chinese nationals travel abroad, the usual = Western European destinations (London, Paris etc.) are complemented by = visits to other parts of Europe, such as Central and Eastern Europe or = Northern Europe. In the first half of 2019, Croatia (with more than a = 100% increase year on year), Latvia, Slovenia, Bulgaria, Estonia, = Serbia, Malta, Ireland and Denmark experienced the largest increases in = inbound Chinese visitors=E2=80=99 volume. Some of these destinations are = popular because of the visa-free policy, but other factors are at work = as well. This brings new infrastructural and cultural challenges for the = =E2=80=9Cnew=E2=80=9D destinations. =20 The study of tourism, though an important aspect of China-Europe = interactions, has been largely isolated from broader research into the = evolution of the China-Europe relationship. The aim of this workshop is = to bring together scholars from different disciplines and countries who = study Chinese tourism and tourists in Europe in order to place it within = the broader picture of economic and social relations between China and = Europe, particularly the new Chinese economic and demographic presence = in Europe.=20 =20 =20 We welcome submissions from business, economics, political and social = science scholars. We are particularly interested in grounded studies = that (1) pay attention to the rise of previously peripheral tourism = destinations such as the Eastern Balkans, (2) reflect on the structural = changes that Chinese tourism may be effecting in the European tourism = sector, and (3) consider Chinese tourism in Europe as part of Europe's = and China's platform economy whose significance is likely to increase = further in the post-pandemic period. =20 =20 A forum with key practitioners will be held as part of this workshop. =20 =20 =20 Topics of interest include: =20 =20

  1. How do Chinese tourists affect tourism destinations in Europe? =20 =20
  2. What are Chinese tourists' expectations from tourist destinations? =20 =20
  3. How does the rise of Chinese tourism and its attendant = infrastructure affect European tourism stakeholders? =20 =20
  4. What are the impacts of the rise of Chinese tourism on the = structure of Chinese business and livelihoods in Europe and on the = socioeconomic status of resident Chinese populations? =20 =20
  5. How does the rise of Chinese tourism affect interethnic relations = between Chinese and local populations? =20 =20
  6. How is Chinese tourism in Europe reflected in Chinese media = production (film, TV shows, social media) and how does this in turn = influence tourism? =20 =20
  7. Methodologies and approaches in research on Chinese tourism in = Europe =20 =20 Every Applicants should send an abstract (300 words max.) on the = relevant topic not later than 15th July 2020 at the following email: = dj.vasiljevic@dgt.uns.ac.rs = (=C4=90or=C4=91ije Vasiljevi=C4=87) =20 --=20 =09 Martina Bofulin In=C5=A1titut za slovensko izseljenstvo in migracije, = Znanstvenoraziskovalni center Slovenske akademije znanosti in umetnosti / Slovenian Migration Institute, Research Centre=20 of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts Novi trg 2, 1001 Ljubljana, Slovenija T: =C2=AD+386 1 470 64 89, GSM: +386 31 441 684, Fax: +386 1 425 78 02 E: martina.bofulin@zrc-sazu.si www.zrc-sazu.si =20 =20 To elektronsko sporo=C4=8Dilo in vse morebitne priloge so poslovna = skrivnost in namenjene izklju=C4=8Dno naslovniku. =C4=8Ce ste sporo=C4=8Di= lo prejeli pomotoma, Vas prosimo, da obvestite po=C5=A1iljatelja, = sporo=C4=8Dilo pa takoj uni=C4=8Dite.
