The School of Languages and Cultures (Japanese Department) at the University of Sydney in conjunction with the Oriental Society of Australia are inviting PHD candidates to present their unique research at a symposium in commemoration of the upcoming 65 year anniversary of the cessation of the Asia-Pacific conflict.
Sixty-five years after the end of the Asia-Pacific War it has become possible to look beyond the national dimensions of the conflict to gain a perspective on the experiences of the war and its aftermath for the peoples of the Pacific. This call for papers asks for original PHD research into the immediate consequences of the war, the longer-term developments that have hindered or contributed to reconciliation and the place of memorial diplomacy in rebuilding international relations. Travel grants or scholarships may become available for participants.
