Oxford Chinese Studies Society



VP Academic

Oxford Chinese Studies Society (OCSS) connects students and researchers from differing departments and disciplines across the University who share an academic interest in the Chinese-speaking world.


Founded in 2015, our primary aim is to create an informal platform for members to meet and socialise, in order to foster the formation of academic collaborations. OCSS holds a variety of relaxed drop-in events, including weekly brunches, Chinese film screenings, and Spring Festival celebrations.

We encourage and provide funding for our members to organise events based on their own ideas. We have hosted several high-profile panels and speakers from the fields of academia, activism, and the arts over the course of the past year. We also run an annual Graduate Seminar weekly in Hilary term, which usually focuses on the practical aspects of conducting research in and on the Sinosphere. 


We welcome all ideas and participation! If you have any ideas for events, please drop us an email at ocss.oxford@gmail.com.
