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.
