Roger Greatrex: The Deletion of Pages from EACS Conference materials in Braga (EACS)
Elizabeth Redden: Censorship at China Studies Meeting (Inside Higher Ed)

Amid increasing concerns that Western universities may stand to compromise their academic integrity in collaborating with the Chinese government-funded Confucius Institutes, the reported censorship of conference materials at the recent European Association for Chinese Studies conference in Portugal has raised alarm.
According to a detailed account posted on the EACS website, conference materials were seized and several pages removed from the conference program – including an advertisement for the Taiwan-based Chiang Ching-kuo Foundation for International Scholarly Exchange, a conference cosponsor — after the chief executive of Confucius Institute Headquarters, Xu Lin, objected to the contents.
