Cold War in Asia Conference
April 25-27, 2013
University of Chicago
The Cold War in Asia Conference will attempt to bridge gaps between various disciplines, time periods, and regional/national borders while also promoting a dialogue that will produce new approaches and perspectives on the Cold War in Asia by addressing and emphasizing the role of non-state actors, cultural practices, gender, the local, and movements and groups that defy a reliance on nationalist frameworks.
We invite graduate students to submit paper proposals that cover one of the five topics in relation to the Cold War in Asia: visual culture, gender, intersection of state and society, decolonization and non-alignment, and knowledge production and censorship. Selected participants will be placed on panels with featured faculty presenters. Confirmed faculty presenters include keynote speaker Tani Barlow (Rice University), Jacob Eyferth (University of Chicago), John Kelly (University of Chicago), Jodi Kim (UC Riverside), Suk-Young Kim (UC Santa Barbara), Mire Koikari (University of Hawai’i), Robert McMahon (Ohio State University), and Wesley Sasaki-Uemura (University of Utah).
Participants will be provided with accommodations and given assistance for airfare. Paper proposals should include a paper title and an abstract of no more than 300 words. Proposals should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by January 25, 2013. Finished papers of 20 pages or less will be expected by March 15, 2013.
