Call for Papers: 14th Graduate Student Conference at University of Toronto, East Asian Studies

Paper proposals are now welcome to In Between, the 14th Annual East Asian Studies Graduate Conference at the University of Toronto, to be held on 22 March 2014 at the department of East Asian Studies.

Titled In Between, this year’s conference wishes to consider the fluidity and liminal aspects of territory in East Asia. We encourage interdisciplinary scholarship and welcome innovative research papers from a wide range of fields such as literary and cultural studies, cultural history, art history, film and media studies, musicology and sound studies, archaeology, landscape and architecture as well as the social sciences.

This year’s keynote speaker is Dr. Andrew Jones from Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures, University of California, Berkeley.

Possible topics include but are not limited to:
• translation and migration
• gender
• city and country
• time and space
• nature and artificiality

We invite all those interested in presenting papers to submit an abstract (300 words maximum) along with a brief biography (affiliation and research interests) by 13 December, 2013. Oral presentations are to be 20 minutes in length (1500-2000 word papers). Selected participants will be asked to submit completed papers by 21 February, 2014 so that panel discussants may have enough time to read the papers in advance. Submissions may be submitted for presentation by an individual or as part of a group panel. Panel submissions must include one abstract per participant for a panel of up to 3 persons.

A $5 registration fee will be collected to assist with the cost of breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Queries may be sent to: eas[dot]gsc[at]utoronto[cot]ca
