Dear all,

I propose setting up a panel for the 5th Congress of Asian and Pacific Studies, which will be held in Paris, France, from 9th to 11th September 2015.

The panel title (tentative) would be something like this (or not, depending on what will work best for all involved): “Life Writing (i.e. memoirs, autobiographies, diaries, letters, testimonies, visual/audio sources etc.), Contested Self and/or History: An Asia-Pacific Perspective.”

CFP: NACBS panel on British Empire and Education/Gender/Public Health/Heritage (Little Rock, November 2015)

Hello everyone, I know it is late, but I'd be interested in forming a panel for the NACBS in Little Rock (Nov. 13-15) that examines any aspects of Imperial education. My paper will have a comparative focus on women's education in colonial British Malaya and Colonial India, but I am looking for panelists that do any aspect of education in the British Empire.
