Welcome to the web page of the
Southeast Early China Roundtable!


This site was last updated on October 21, 2014 by Jeffrey L. Richey.


Founded in 1997, the Southeast Early China Roundtable (SEECR) is a group of scholars from the south Atlantic region who specialize or maintain an interest in the study of China, from the earliest period through the Tang dynasty. The purpose of the group is twofold -- first, to provide a forum for specialist discussion of all aspects of early China studies through yearly meetings; and second, to promote the study of early China in the Southeast by sponsoring public non-specialist lectures.  SEECR members typically host annual meetings at their academic institutions, providing meals, accommodations and meeting space for participants.  

The current Chair of SEECR is Keith Knapp, Professor of History at The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina.


The 18th Annual SEECR will be hosted by The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill from October 31-November 2, 2014. The call for papers may be found here.
