“Asian Studies in the Digital Age”
48th Annual Mid-Atlantic Region Association for Asian Studies Conference
October 12–13, 2019
Dickinson College, Carlisle, PA
Dickinson College and the Mid-Atlantic Region of the Association for Asian Studies are pleased to announce a call for papers for our 48th annual conference which will convene October 12–13, 2019. The conference theme “Asian Studies in the Digital Age” reflects upon what it means to study Asia in an historical moment animated by the global spread of digital technologies. The conference is open to scholars from all academic disciplines and from all ranks, including full-time and part-time faculty, graduate students, independent scholars, and professionals. We seek paper proposals or e-posters on all topics related to Asia. We especially encourage submissions from scholars and students working in digital humanities, science and technology studies, media studies, data science, communications, information science, software studies, and platform studies. A series of digital humanities workshops will be run concurrent with the conference for interested participants (no preregistration necessary) and the keynote address will be delivered by Professor Christine Yano.
The deadline for proposals is June 1st.
