Philippine Studies Association 2018 National Conference (Deadline: 5 March 2018)

CALL FOR PAPERS

The Reshaping of Philippine Studies: Contending viewpoints, voices, and knowledges

September 26-28, 2018
National Museum of the Philippines
P. Burgos Drive, Rizal Park, Manila

In the era of global mobilities and fluid identities, Philippine Studies is constantly reframed, negotiated, or contested by scholars and academics. New theoretical and methodological directions emerge that reflect tensions between home-grown and diasporic scholarship, contending visions of nation, or new positions of identification. Mindful of these competing viewpoints, voices, and knowledges, the Philippine Studies Association (PSA) invites original presentations that engage with, explore, or bear upon, these directions.

Pre-formed panels are preferred.

Email submissions to philstudiesassociation@gmail.com and 2018natcon@philstudies.org.

InterAsian Connections VI: Hanoi (2018): Call for Papers (Deadline: 28 Feb 2018)

Conference on InterAsian Connections VI: Hanoi
December 4-7, 2018
Hosted by the Vietnam Academy of Social Sciences

CALL FOR WORKSHOP PAPERS
Deadline: February 28, 2018

This series showcases innovative research from across the social sciences and related disciplines and explores themes that transform conventional understandings of Asia. Crossing traditional area studies boundaries and creating international and interdisciplinary networks of scholars working to theorize the intersection of the “global” and the “regional” in a variety of contexts, the conference reconceptualizes Asia as a dynamic and interconnected historical, geographical, and cultural formation stretching from West Asia through Eurasia, South Asia and Southeast Asia to East Asia.

Paper proposals are now being accepted for all eight workshops. Each workshop has two directors with different institutional affiliations, most representing different disciplines. Individual applications are invited from junior and senior scholars, whether graduate students, faculty, or researchers in NGOs or other research organizations.

For more information, visit the conference website: https://www.ssrc.org/programs/child-component/interasia-program/interasian-connections-conference-series/interasian-connections-vi-hanoi-2018/

Organized by: Social Science Research Council InterAsia Program, Duke University Global Asia Initiative, Göttingen University Global and Transregional Studies Platform, the Hong Kong Institute for the Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Hong Kong, Asia Research Institute at the National University of Singapore, Seoul National University Asia Center, Vietnam Academy of Social Sciences, and Yale University – collectively the Organizers.
