Jointly sponsored by the Visualizing Cultures project at M.I.T. and the following programs at Princeton University: Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies and the East Asian Studies Program
This two-day conference will be held at Princeton University on May 11-12, 2012 and will consist of image-driven presentations addressing both Asian and non-Asian representations of 19th and 20th-century developments in the history of East and Southeast Asia.
The conference will be open to the public. Contributors will be provided lodging, but should be prepared to cover their travel expenses. “Visualizing Asia in the Modern World” follows a lively conference on this same subject held at Yale in the spring of 2010 and at Harvard in 2011, and we again look forward to international participation in opening these new windows of perception and understanding.
The presentations themselves will be relatively brief, no more than 20 minutes in length. Proposals for presentations, up to 3 pages double spaced, plus a small number of representative images, should be submitted by December 23, 2011 in PDF format please no files larger than 10mg.
