Call for Papers: Contested Spaces: 13th Annual EAS Graduate Conference

Contested Spaces – 13th Annual East Asian Studies Graduate Student Conference, University of Toronto, March 2, 2013
Keynote Address by Prof.  Lisa Kim Davis (UCLA)

Using East Asia as a point of departure, Contested Spaces challenges speakers to interrogate our understanding of space and society in all disciplines including history, geography, sociology, literature, and anthropology.

We invite those interested in presenting papers to submit an abstract (300 words maximum) with biographical information (name, affiliation, and research interests) by December 7, 2012.  Presentations should be 20 minutes in length (1500-2000 word papers). Selected participants will be asked to submit completed papers by 15 February 2013 so that panel discussants may read papers in advance. Submissions may be for an individual or panel. Panel submissions must include one abstract per participant, up to 3 persons.
