Call for Papers: CU Boulder Asian Studies Graduate Association Conference

call for papers [150-2]We are pleased to announce the University of Colorado, Boulder, Asian Studies Graduate Conference will be held at the end of February 2015.

The University of Colorado Boulder Asian Studies Graduate Association will hold its Annual Graduate Student Conference on February 27-28, 2015 in Boulder, CO. We invite graduate students to submit papers that consider Asian cultures, ancient and modern. We welcome papers in all fields of research on Asia, including literature, history, history of science, religious studies, philosophy, anthropology, political science, comparative literature, etc.

Keynote addresses will be given by both Professor Ding Xiang Warner of Cornell University and Professor Michael Emmerich of the University of California, Los Angeles. In addition to discussing topics on China and Japan, respectively, these two professors and the University of Colorado faculty will be on hand to provide feedback to presenters throughout the conference. Beyond exploring various topics in Asian Studies, our conferences have always focused on professional development for graduate students interested in presenting papers and becoming involved in academic networks with others in the field. During the two days of our conference on Friday afternoon and Saturday, we will provide refreshments, as well as a dinner on Friday night for student presenters and faculty. In order to leave time for comments and questions, and to ensure that the conference is conducted in a timely, efficient manner, presentations must not exceed twenty minutes.  Prospective participants are requested to submit an abstract of the paper they intend to present as well as a resume/curriculum vitae to cubasga@gmail.com by January 2, 2015.  Any other inquiries may also be directed to this address. We will be happy to help you find accommodation in Boulder.
With best regards,

The University of Colorado Boulder Asian Studies Graduate Association (CUBASGA)
