CFP: University of Hawaii’s Conference on Asian Studies [March 14-16]: Submit by Jan 20: Expired

About the Conference:
The School of Pacific and Asian Studies (SPAS) is excited to announce the 2018 SPAS Graduate Student Conference on Asian Studies here at the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa from March 14-16, 2018.
We are interested in proposals for papers, panels, and performances, reflecting on what
scholars and others deem “The Asian Century.” Through historical rotation of power, Asia is taking prominence on the global stage. We are interested in research that examines this concept, especially the ways that smaller countries across Asia have gained power. We are also looking for presentations that address inter-Asia and hegemonic interactions, whether through politics, economy, or culture and can support or contest disciplinary and regional approaches to the study of the Asia Pacific region. With this goal in mind, we also encourage those with a background in the arts to apply.
We are especially looking for papers that:
· Involve original research in all areas of Asia and Asian Studies
· Incorporate interdisciplinary methods and frameworks
· Engage comparative studies or transnationalism
· Explore new and emerging trends in Asian Studies
· Critically re-examine existing methodologies and frameworks
· Present Asian performance practices
Our keynote speaker this year is Dr. Sophal Ear, from Occidental College.
