Continuity, Change, and Contestation: Multidisciplinary and Transnational Perspectives on the Asia-Pacific
When: April 3-5, 2013
Where: Honolulu, Hawai’i at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa’s Center for Korean Studies Building
The University of Hawai’i at Mānoa’s School of Pacific and Asian Studies (SPAS) will host the 24th annual graduate student conference in Spring of 2013. The event hopes to feature and promote the graduate-level research of students hailing from a wide range of backgrounds including Hawai’i, the US Mainland, Asia, and the Pacific Islands. The conference will provide the UH Mānoa student community, faculty, and staff with exposure to a diversity of contemporary themes and research topics in Asian and Pacific Island Studies. In addition to research presentations, the conference will feature performances by various Asian and Pacific dance and music groups and will host a keynote speaker whose research addresses the conference’s interdisciplinary theme. The event will also provide the opportunity for students to network with peers from all over the Asia-Pacific region.
As this year’s theme indicates, we invite scholars to submit abstracts for papers that:
- Incorporate multidisciplinary approaches
- Challenge approaches based on national or regional focus
- Engage new and emerging trends in Pacific and/or Asian Studies
- Involve any original research on Asia and/or the Pacific
- Present Asian and/or Pacific performance practices
THE DEADLINE FOR ABSTRACTS HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO FEBRUARY 1 2013. Please see below for the link to the Call for Papers for the 2013 SPAS Graduate Student Conference.
