AAS 2018 5th Association for Asian Studies Conference

Event Description

On behalf of the Association for Asian Studies (AAS) and Ashoka University, India we are pleased to invite you to submit organized panels and roundtable proposals (no individual paper proposals accepted) to be presented at the fifth AAS-in-ASIA Conference to be held between the 5th and 8th of July, 2018 at the India Habitat Centre in New Delhi, India.

The Program Committee for the AAS-in-ASIA conference seeks proposals dealing with all regions of Asia on subjects covering a wide range of scholarly disciplines and professional fields under the broad theme: Asia in Motion: Geographies and Genealogies.  Derived from the Greco-Roman conception of the world, the concept of Asia has a perverse genealogy as Europe’s other.  Asians have thus experienced ‘Asia’ in ephemeral, uneven, and fleeting modes.

At its heart lie the limits of inherited geographical categories. Nevertheless, the concept of Asia retains great power in the political imagination. It serves as a critique of geography as a historical category and of the Asian nation-states that are today asserting themselves politically, economically, and geographically by invoking older and mythic forms of Asian culture and genealogies.

We particularly invite proposals that interrogate received ideas of Asia and conceive of new spatial and temporal imaginings, and that explore, understand, and reassert those Asias that exist beyond conventional political geographies.

Guidelines for Proposal Submission:

  1. The program committee will give preference to proposals that include participants from two or more countries, whether the panel focuses on a single nation or culture or focuses on some comparative dimension.
  2. The program discourages panel proposals from a group of scholars coming from the same institution.
  3. Generally speaking, panels with diverse (gender, academic rank, national origin, disciplinary approach) participation will be favored over narrowly constructed panels.
  4. Panels with topics that make some link to the conference theme also will be favored.
  5. All proposals must be submitted electronically via the proposal submission
