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.
