49th Annual Mid-Atlantic Region Association for Asian Studies Conference Call for Papers
Asia on the Move: From Grassroots to Global
October 23-24, 2021
Deadline for paper or panel submission: July 15, 2021
Villanova University and the Mid-Atlantic Regional Association for Asian Studies announce the call for papers for the 49th annual regional conference. As many campuses are preparing for in-person classes, we feel we can hold an in-person conference in October with certain safety protocols in place. Amidst the coronavirus epidemic and the various democratic movements that have rocked Asia from Hong Kong to New Delhi, the conference theme “Asia on the Move: From Grassroots to Global” aims to explore various interdisciplinary studies that combine perspectives from politics, environment, public health, territorial issues, migration, popular culture, gender, sexuality, religious practices, and more. We encourage proposals from any discipline and welcome participation from faculty, students, independent scholars, and professionals. We especially encourage panels with innovative combinations of individuals and fields. Please visit the MARAAS website for conference information, a flyer to post and share, and instructions on submitting a panel or individual paper. See you in October!
