Description: The Illinois/Indiana East Asia National Resource Center Consortium (IL/IN East Asia NRC) is pleased to announce its sixth annual IL/IN National Dissertation Workshop in the field of Asian Film and Media. The workshop will be held August 6-7 on the campus of the University of Illinois at Urbana- Champaign. Doctoral students in the humanities, social sciences, and fine arts whose dissertation projects concern Asian film and media, broadly conceived, are invited to apply. Areas of interest include film, communications, fine arts, anthropology, history, and sociology, among others. The workshop is designed to enable students just beginning work on their dissertations, as well as those farther along, to engage in intensive discussions of their own and each other’s projects. Possibilities for continuing networks among interested students and faculty will also be explored. The workshop will be limited to eight participants, and the cost of the workshop, some meals, and two nights’ lodging will be covered by the IL/IN East Asia NRC.
The workshop will be led by Gary Xu, Associate Professor in the department of East Asian Languages and Cultures at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign; Stephanie DeBoer, Assistant Professor in the department of Communication and Culture at Indiana University Bloomington; and Professor Gregory A. Waller in the department of Communication and Culture at Indiana University Bloomington.
Applicants must be enrolled full-time in a doctoral program and must have drafted a dissertation research proposal, although they need not have advanced to candidacy. Those in the early phases of writing are also encouraged to apply. In order to prepare the ground for a productive exchange, participants must come to the workshop having read and prepared comments on the other participants’ writing samples.
The application deadline is May 30, 2012. Application materials consist of two items:
(1) a current CV
(2) a 4-6-page double-spaced dissertation proposal (including a description of the specific issues being
addressed, the intellectual approach, and the materials being studied).
Applications should be submitted by e-mail attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applicants will be informed whether or not they have been selected for the workshop no later than June 15, 2012.
