April 22nd, 2017 at the University of Pennsylvania 

 

The Department of East Asian Languages and Civilizations at the University of Pennsylvania

presents its first annual graduate student conference: Structure and Subordination: Law, Science, and

Religion in East Asia. This one-day conference provides a forum for graduate students from

regional institutions to examine how the legal, scientific, religious, and sociopolitical boundaries

of East Asia (China, Korea, Japan, and Mongolia) have been interrogated in the past and explore

how they are being redrawn in the present.

 

We welcome applications from currently enrolled graduate students in all disciplines related to

the study of East Asia and especially encourage those that address the following conference

themes:

 

• The relationship between policy, technology, and thought in East Asia

 

• The mobilization of art and visual culture to challenge political authority in East Asia

 

• The construction and performance of gender, race, and other group identities in East Asia

 

• The influence of differing conceptions of the body in East Asia

 

• The translation of texts across borders and the discovery of self in East Asia
