Call for Proposals: Inaugural AAS-in-Asia Conference: “Asia in Motion: Heritage and Transformation”

National Univ. of Singapore
17th – 19th Jul 2014
Deadline: 31st Oct 2013

‘On behalf of the Association for Asian Studies (AAS), the Asia Research Institute (ARI), and the Faculty of the Arts and Social Sciences (FASS) of the National University of Singapore (NUS), we are pleased to invite colleagues in Asian studies to submit proposals for organized panels and roundtables (no individual paper proposals accepted) to be presented at the inaugural AAS-in-ASIA Conference to be held July 17-19, 2014 at the National University of Singapore.

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 theme “Asia in Motion: Heritage and Transformation.” Proposals addressing this theme are encouraged on topics as diverse as political and economic changes, literary and cultural expression, environmental sustainability, media and pop cultural production, food and energy policy, new models for Asian enterprise and business, as well as issues of globalization and urban growth.

Panels are welcomed from scholars throughout 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. 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. The program committee will strongly favor and give preference to proposals that include participants from two or more countries, whether the panel focuses on a single nation or culture or focuses on some comparative dimension. The program discourages panel proposals from a group of scholars coming from the same institution. Generally speaking, panels with diverse (gender, academic rank, national origin, disciplinary approach) participation will be favored over narrowly constructed panels. Panels that address topics of broad relevance will also be preferred.

The deadline for proposal submissions is October 31, 2013 at 5:00 p.m. EST. All proposals must be submitted electronically via the proposal submission website. After submission, your proposal will be forwarded to program committee for review. You will find detailed instructions for submissions below. You may also access detailed information about the conference (FAQs, venue, transportation, program, accommodations, etc.) via the links on the left-hand side menu.

If you have any questions regarding panel participation that is not answered in this Call for Proposals or FAQ, please contact Justin McDaniel at
