CFP and Call for Discussant: AAS 2016 "Space, History, and the Visual/Material in Asia"

 
In this panel, we are interested in the visualization and materialization of space and time in a variety of created objects and environments: maps, museums, photographs, film, writings, and landscapes. We will consider how different materializations reproduce or complicate the perceived gap between the social and the material.

Re: CFP: AAS 2016 "Legal Regimes and Courtroom drama"

This is a follow up on the previous CFP on "legal regimes and courtroom drama" session for the Association for Asian Studies 2016 annual meeting in Seattle (March 31-April 3). We are still searching for a possible fourth panelist, particularly whose work is on courtroom cases. We hope to engage in a dialogue with fellow scholars interested in similar questions across disciplines and geographical areas. Please email me (mazumder@union.edu) with abstract and paper titles as soon as possible, as the deadline is around the corner. Thanks!
