WCAAS 2021: SHIFTING PARADIGMS IN ASIAN STUDIES (Proposal Deadline EXTENDED)
7–9 October 2021
Virtual Conference on Zoom
Hosted by Brigham Young University, Provo, Utah
The tumultuous events of this past year have upended societies around the world, inspiring reevaluations of past traditions as well as social, political, and cultural practices moving forward. For this conference, we invite proposals across a range of disciplines that seek to reevaluate the contexts within which our understanding of the cultural, historical, economic, and political conditions of Asia’s past, present, and future are based. We encourage proposals that deal with traditions in East Asia, Southeast Asia, South Asia, and other Asian regions; regional connections within Asia; and Asia’s interconnections with other world regions.
Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah will host this virtual conference, which will be held exclusively on Zoom. We invite proposals for three types of events: general sessions of approximately 90 minutes, which could include paper panels, roundtables, workshops, and poster sessions; workshop groups designed for graduate students; and a poster session for undergraduates. Individual paper submissions will not be considered for this conference.
The deadline for proposal submissions has been extended. Please see the new due dates below and follow the links to submit a proposal. We hope to send out letters of acceptance in late August or early September via email. A preliminary program will be posted on our website in September.
