The graduate students of the Department of East Asian Studies at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada invite proposals for their first Graduate Student Conference in East Asian Studies, to be held on August 5th to 7th, 2004.
The Department of East Asian Studies in conjunction with The Prince Takamado Japan Centre for Teaching and Research is pleased to sponsor this conference as a forum for graduate students to present their own scholarly work. We extend the invitation to individuals working on original research across disciplines and traditional geographic divisions but who may otherwise continue to be separated by more traditional institutional models of the place of East Asian languages and cultures in the Humanities and Social Sciences. Papers from a wide range of fields are welcome, including: Anthropology, Art History, Business, Communications, Cultural Studies, Education, History, Journalism, Language Pedagogy and Linguistics, Literature, Philosophy, Religious Studies, Sociology, and Women’s Studies.
Papers will be given in English and should be no longer than 15 minutes (approximately 7-8 pages double spaced). Abstracts should be submitted to the conference committee by e-mail (or post-marked) by April 1st, 2004, and should be no more than 250 words in length (please include all necessary contact information and affiliations). Notification of the results (acceptance or rejection) shall be no later than mid-June, 2004. We prefer presenters form and submit their own thematically-linked three- to four-person panels. Groups submitting potential panels should send individual abstracts together, if possible, in the same email or envelope with a brief panel abstract (also no more than 250 words). The organizing committee reserves the right to alter and/or restructure papers and panel proposals as it sees necessary.
Selected papers delivered at the conference will be published in the Conference Proceedings.
