Dear Colleagues,

The 68th Midwest Conference on Asian Affairs (MCAA) Annual Meeting will be held at Michigan State University from October 4 – 6, 2019, and we would be delighted to see you in East Lansing. We hope you'll consider submitting a paper or panel proposal.


The MCAA seeks to promote Asian Studies at the university, secondary, and primary levels encouraging scholarly interchange between Asianists in the Midwest as well as with those from other parts of the country and the world. Scholars and students from all regions are invited to participate.


We are now soliciting panels, roundtables, and individual papers in all fields dealing with China and Inner Asia, Northeast Asia, South Asia, and Southeast Asia, the Asian Diaspora, and topical and comparative panels. Faculty, graduate, and undergraduate students, as well as independent scholars, are encouraged to share their work and attend the conference. If you are interested, please submit a paper proposal on the Midwest Conference on Asian Affairs website by May 11, 2019 at 11:59 p.m.
