The Seventh Annual CUEAGA Conference
April 14-15, 2006
University of Colorado at Boulder
“Authenticity and Subversion: Tracking Change Through Asia”
In collaboration with the East Asian Languages and Civilizations (EALC) Department, Religious Studies Department, Center for Asian Studies (CAS), and the Cultural Events Board, the University of Colorado East Asian Graduates Association wishes to announce the Seventh Annual CUEAGA Conference. This is an interdisciplinary conference to be held April 14-15, 2006 at the University of Colorado-Boulder.
Organized in 1998, the purpose of this conference is to provide a forum for graduate students to present their research from any discipline in the Humanities and Social Sciences that pertains to East Asia. Students also have a chance to meet and interact with professors from the CU campus as well as from other universities. This years keynote speakers are Ken Ito from the University of Michigan and Michael Brose from the University of Wyoming.
To encourage greater participation and interest, our conference theme, “Authenticity and Subversion: Tracking Change Through Asia”, is intentionally broad. Graduate students are invited to submit papers from the following fields: political science, literature, gender/cultural studies, international relations, philosophy, history, or religion. Each participant will be allotted 20 minutes for their presentations, followed by 10 minutes for questions from the audience. Panels are open to graduate students to present and discuss positions on any particular issue/subject related to East Asia.
Students selected to participate will also be asked to submit a 10-15-page version of their paper for publication in the CUEAGA 2007 Journal.
Participants interested in competing for an award for outstanding conference paper should submit a written version of their presentation by March 15, 2006.
To be considered for participation please submit a one-page abstract by February 15, 2006. Selected participants will be notified by March 1 via email. Abstracts should be submitted electronically by e-mail, preferably as an attachment in Word format. Please also include a cover letter indicating your name, program, school, year, and research interests or brief curriculum vitae. If you require any technical support, also indicate this in your abstract.
