Program:  See program schedule below

The ICS Graduate Forum, which is held each spring, provides OSU graduate students in China-related fields a venue for presenting their research. It gives students whose abstracts have been accepted for presentation at a regional, national or international conference an opportunity to rehearse their presentation. Topics for presentation may deal with any aspect of China or the Chinese language; and can come from any discipline: humanities, social sciences, STEM, historical or modern, etc., etc. Also welcomed are presentations by graduate students who are completing their dissertation as well as those who wish to practice delivering a conference-style presentation. This year, ten students are presenting, representing six units across the OSU campus: School of Music, Department of History, Department of History of Art, Department of Linguistics, Department of Near Eastern Languages and Cultures (NELC), and Department of East Asian Languages and Literatures (DEALL).
