Transnationalism can be defined as a flow/exchange of ideas, people, religions, cultures, goods, diseases, technologies, and capital across various regions that leads to connections and conflicts across national boundaries. These flows and exchanges have always existed in human history. Traders and merchants have bought and sold goods; scholars, educators, and religious leaders have spread ideas, religions, and philosophies; and people and entire communities have moved to, resettled in, or conquered new locations. Such movements and exchanges have transformed societies by altering the relationships between different population groups and sometimes disrupting the balance of power within regions.
The History Department at SLCC will host the "Transnational Asia Conference" at Salt Lake Community College on 31 March, 2022. The conference will explore the interactions described above in an Asian context.
We invite faculty and students from across the humanities and social sciences to submit proposals for papers or panels that adopt a transnational or interdisciplinary approach. All submissions must be based on original research. True to the name of the conference, sessions/panels will be organized by themes that cross geographical, political, and cultural boundaries.
