Jointly sponsored by the Visualizing Cultures project at M.I.T. and the Yale Center for East Asian Studies.
We ask all participants in this two-day conference to develop image-driven presentations on 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, at Harvard in 2011, and at Princeton in 2012. 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 February 15, 2013 in PDF format. Please no files larger than 10MB.

For a sense of possible topical and thematic approaches, including innovative formatting of online scholarship and pedagogy, see http://visualizingcultures.mit.edu as well as the list of presentations made at the 2012 Princeton conference http://www.visualizingasia.com. Priority will be given to those who did not present at the previous conferences. We welcome submissions from scholars at all levels of their careers and from a wide variety of disciplines.
