2014 New England Asian Studies Academic Conference Call for Papers


2014 New England Association for Asian Studies Academic Conference

The Asian and Asian American Studies Institute at the University of Connecticut is pleased to co-host the annual meeting of the New England Association for Asian Studies on October 4, 2014.

Call for Papers

The NEAAS Program Committee welcomes proposals for panels, roundtables, or individual presentations that address the history, societies, diasporas, political and economic systems, languages and literary/visual cultures of Asia. Panels and roundtables that take an innovative approach to format (interdisciplinary, creative, mixed media) and an interdisciplinary methodology (with regard to field) are welcome, as are traditionally organized academic panels. The coordinators also welcome comparative approaches. Last, but certainly not least, the organizers also encourage roundtables that address the state of the field.

All proposals are due August 1, 2014.

Inquiries about the conference can be addressed to either of the co-chairs of the Program Committee:  Cathy Schlund-Vials (cathy.schlund-vials@uconn.edu) and Alexis Dudden (alexis.dudden@uconn.edu).

Conference Site

Conference sessions and meals will take place at the Nathan Hale Inn and Conference Center, located on the UConn Storrs Campus.
