P.S. Please note these words of encouragement that AAS President Dr. Katherine Bowie sent us: “I would love to see more panels on the Philippines/Southeast Asia at the Delhi conference. There is a link to help people find colleagues to form panels. People don’t need to register until after they learn if their panel has been accepted (and don’t have to be members of AAS to register).”
AAS-in-Asia 5-8 July 2018 New Delhi
Call for Proposals
Submission Deadline Extended: November 30, 2017
5:00pm Eastern Standard Time
The Program Committee for the AAS-in-ASIA conference seeks proposals dealing with all regions of Asia on subjects covering a wide range of scholarly disciplines and professional fields under the broad theme: Asia in Motion: Geographies and Genealogies.
The Association for Asian Studies (AAS) and Ashoka University in India will host the the fifth AAS-in-ASIA Conference July 5-8, 2018 at India Habitat Centre in Delhi, India.
One of the goals of this AAS-in-ASIA conference is to foster lines of dialogue and scholarly communication that cross the ordinary (often nation-specific) boundaries of academic networks. Panels are welcomed from scholars in disciplines across the field of Asian studies, wherever they may be based academically, and are especially encouraged from scholars representing academic communities that are relatively underrepresented in international meetings.
