Asia Intertwined: 16th Annual Harvard East Asia Society Conference


Asia Intertwined: The 16th Annual Harvard East Asia Society Conference
Harvard University, Cambridge, MA, USA
February 22nd - 24th, 2013

The Harvard East Asia Society invites currently enrolled graduate students from around the world, working across all disciplines to submit papers for its annual conference, which will be held on the weekend of February 22nd -24th, 2013 at Harvard University.

This year, the committee invites papers that are interdisciplinary in scope, and which explore and challenge the notion of East Asia as a discrete geographical region that can be cleanly and definitively periodized. Preference will be given to papers that locate their subjects within a broader Asian context, and which reconsider cultural, historical and political connections across space and time.

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

Eligibility 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 or Inner Asia.
3. Please complete and submit the HEAS Individual Paper Application Form (found at: http://www.hcs.harvard.edu/~heas/conference/index.html) with an abstract of no more than 300 words, and a short bio of no more than 100 words, to heas.absracts@gmail.com by November 18th, 2012. Abstracts over 300 words will not be accepted. Applicants are encouraged to submit their abstracts as early as possible, to allow for processing.
