I am looking to put together a panel on Imperial Borderlands in the British Empire in the 19th Century for the North American British Studies Conference in Providence RI, in October 2018. My own paper is on Sir Alexander Burnes's _Travels into Bokhara_ (1835); but I would welcome papers on Central Asia, Northern India, Africa, China, Persia, the Middle East, or other contact zones in the world just outside British Imperial reach at the time. Please send detailed abstracts of 500 words by March 1, 2018.
In this panel, we welcome discussions on Chinese literature before 1900. Papers might address (but not limited to) (re)examinations of various literary works such as poetry, prose, fiction, drama, etc.; and interdisciplinary studies between literary texts (in a broad sense) and contexts such as gender, religion, history, political science, or cultural studies.
I am delighted to announce 20 full bursaries for our MA level Ishibashi Summer School in Japanese Arts and Cultural Heritage at the University of East Anglia, Norwich, UK and the Sainsbury Institute for the Study of Japanese Arts and Cultures. The deadline for applications is 31 March 2018. Applications from any country welcome. The Summer School will be taught in English. Full details available online.
