CALL FOR PAPERS: GRADUATE STUDENT CONFERENCE ON EAST ASIA
Twenty-second Annual Graduate Student Conference on East Asia
Columbia University in the City of New York
Friday February 15th to Saturday February 16th, 2013
Graduate students are invited to submit papers for the Twenty-Second Annual Graduate Student Conference on East Asia. This two-day conference provides a forum for students from institutions around the world to meet and share ideas and research with their peers. Participants will have the opportunity to use this year’s conference as a forum for the promotion and circulation of new ideas within East Asian Studies. In addition, participants will gain valuable experience in presenting their work for discussion with other graduate students as well as Columbia faculty.
We welcome applications from graduate students engaged in research on all fields in East Asian Studies, including history, literature, political science, economics, art history, religion, sociology, archaeology, law, environmental studies and anthropology.
Participants can take part in the conference as presenters or discussants. Presenters deliver a talk no longer than 15 minutes that summarize research in progress. Discussants introduce the panelists and facilitate the 20-minute discussion session following the presentations.
Additionally, this year’s committee is willing to consider applications from pre-arranged panels of three to four presenters organized around a specific research topic, such as a region, discipline or theme.
