CFP: UW/UBC Graduate Student Asian Studies Conference, April 12-14, 2013

UW/UBC Graduate Student Asian Studies Conference
University of Washington Campus, Seattle Campus
April 12-14, 2013

The Jackson School of International Studies China Studies Program at the University of Washington invites current graduate students working in all disciplines to submit papers for its annual conference co-hosted with the University of British Columbia. Research which explores modern political, social, linguistic, religious, economic and security developments in Asia is welcomed. Papers that focus on a broad Asian context and consider cultural, historical and political connections will be prioritized.Alongside the traditional presentation of publication-level scholarship, the UW/UBC conference will also conduct a discussion roundtable for working papers with the goal of allowing for collaboration on methodological, research, and thematic challenges inherent to the writing process. Graduate students may submit proper research papers to the traditional presentation forum as well as the working paper roundtable if they so choose.

Application Guidelines:

  • Applicants must be currently engaged in graduate study (“postgraduate” in British degree classification systems).
  • Papers must be related to East, Central, South, Southeast and/or Southwest Asia.
  • Applicants must submit abstracts of no more than 300 words, and a short bio of no more than 100 words, by January 31st, 2013.
