CFP: Vietnam Beyond the Boundaries
Call for Papers
Vietnam Beyond the Boundaries
Co-organised and co-sponsored by Monash University, the East-West Center, and the University of Hawaii
Venue: the Imin Conference Center, East-West Center, Honolulu, Hawaii
November 8-9, 2012
The conference organizing committee will focus on several areas of keen interest to Vietnam in its relations with outside countries: historical and contemporary international relationships (including with Australia, China, and the United States); issues of language, culture, ideology and identity that has placed Vietnam scholarship in heated academic debates among scholars; issues of economic development and business relationships; issues concerning educational reforms with regards to nation building, globalization, internationalization and social justice; and climate change and other related environment and resource issues. The committee is interested in both cutting-edge academic research as well as policy issues.
We invite proposals for panels that address any of these issues or any other issues that you believe are significant in Vietnam’s external engagement. These might include, for example, relationships in the South China Sea, the TransPacific Partnership negotiations, Vietnam foreign investment policies and practices, international student flows, Vietnam’s climate change strategy and adaption efforts, disaster management issues, and urbanization issues. We would like to invite proposals of 200 – 300 words for individual presentations, or up to 500 words for a panel, that address the conference focus and any of the above topics. Topics that lie outside the main themes but fall within social sciences, humanities and education are also welcome.
Deadline for abstract submission: 31 July 2012
The Conference Website www.engagingwithvietnam.com will be available on May 5th 2012. Submission of proposals should follow the guidelines on the website and should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject title "Abstract Submission". Please address all queries regarding the conference to email@example.com.
