13th Annual Harvard East Asia Society Graduate Student Conference
Facing East: Conversations and Connections

February 26 - February 28, 2010

The Harvard East Asia Society (HEAS) Graduate Student Conference invites graduate students from around the world, conducting research in all disciplines, to submit abstracts for our 2010 conference:

Facing East: Conversations and Connections

As the first decade of the 21st century draws to a close, East Asia is exerting an unprecedented impact on global society. Now more than ever, we should explore every facet of East Asia, past and present, and engage in cooperative conversation.

The HEAS Graduate Student Conference is an annual conference which aims to provide an interdisciplinary forum for graduate students to exchange ideas and discuss current research on East Asia. The conference is an opportunity for young scholars to present their research to both their peers and eminent scholars in East Asian Studies. All panels will be moderated by Harvard University faculty. The conference will also enable participants to meet others in their field conducting similar research and forge new friendships.

We welcome submissions from graduate students in all disciplines. Papers should be related to East Asia, Inner Asia, Singapore, or Vietnam. We will consider submissions of individual papers and panel proposals.

Eligibility and Application Guidelines:
1. Applicants must be currently enrolled in a program of graduate study ("postgraduate" in British degree classification systems).
2. Papers must be related to East Asia, Inner Asia, Singapore, and Vietnam.
