We are extending the deadline for submissions to the 2012 Southeast Conference of the Association for Asian Studies Annual Meeting to November 7. With many China related submissions in hand, we now especially welcome papers focusing on Japan, Korea, and South Asia!
The 51st annual meeting of the Southeast Conference of the Association for Asian Studies (SEC/AAS) will be hosted by Furman University, to be held in Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Greenville, South Carolina. This year’s conference will feature a keynote by AAS president and historian, GAIL HERSHATTER, University of California, Santa Cruz.
Proposals for panels on specific Asia-related topics are expressly solicited; panels devoted to teaching Asian subjects at the secondary or college level are also requested. Individual paper proposals are also welcome. Only one paper per participant will be accepted.
Attention graduate students! SEC/AAS will make available three grants of $200 each to ease the cost of participation by graduate students presenting papers at the conference. Indicate graduate student status and whether you would like to be considered for an award along with your personal information (from the text box, below) when submitting your proposal to the program chair. Preference in the awards will be given to graduate students traveling from beyond the immediate region of the conference location. Graduate students should also consider entering their papers in the SEC graduate prize competition; the winner has a chance of appearing on a panel at the 2013 AAS national meeting.
All paper/panel submissions should include the following information for all presenters, chairs, and discussants:
Name of the presenter
Regional and discipline specializations
E-mail and mailing address
Home and office phone & fax numbers
Also, graduate students who wish to be considered for the SEC/AAS travel grants (above) should so indicate.
INDIVIDUAL PAPER proposals should also include the following:
Personal information, title of paper, region and discipline of the paper, a 200- to 250-word abstract or summary of the paper, and any audiovisual (AV) or other equipment required for the presentation of the paper. (Please note that equipment requests may only be acted upon if submitted along with the paper proposal. Satisfying equipment needs at the last minute may not be possible).
