Call for Proposals: Inaugural AAS-in-Asia Conference

ASIA IN MOTION: HERITAGE AND TRANSFORMATION

at the National University of Singapore, July 17-19, 2014

The Association for Asian Studies (AAS), the Asia Research Institute (ARI), and the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS) of the National University of Singapore are pleased to announce the inaugural AAS-in-Asia conference, “Asia in Motion: Heritage and Transformation.” We seek to attract a wide range of panel proposals from humanists and social scientists, as well as reflective practitioners from the worlds of policy, civil society, journalism, and other professional fields.

The AAS-in-Asia conference will build upon emerging visions and trends in Asian studies within Asia. By bringing together scholars and specialists on Asia within Asia as well as from other parts of the world at a gathering in Asia, we hope to spark new and fruitful collaborations. The AAS also expects to reach out to scholars of Asia who might not usually attend an AAS conference in North America. It is our hope that the conference will stimulate new networks among scholars within Asia and beyond, providing broader inter-continental connections for the future of Asian studies.

Please note: If you have already submitted a proposal for the 2014 AAS Annual Conference in Philadelphia, you are still eligible to submit a proposal for consideration for the AAS-in-Asia conference in Singapore.

For more details regarding this conference including proposal submission instructions, please go to http://www.aas-in-asia.org/index.htm

The deadline for proposal submission is October 31, 2013 at 5:00pm E.S.T.
