Harvard EAS Conference CFP


The 20th Annual Harvard East Asia Society Conference:

Roads Through Asia
Harvard University, Cambridge, MA, USA

The Harvard East Asia Society (HEAS) invites currently enrolled graduate students working across all disciplines to submit abstracts for its annual conference.

This year’s conference will be held from February 24-25, 2017. Participants should plan to arrive on or before February 24, 2017.

The HEAS Conference Committee invites the submission of papers that examine Asia from various perspectives and disciplines, including but not limited to history, philosophy, religion, literature, art history, sociology, anthropology, archaeology, economics, political science, gender studies, environmental studies, and law. Preference will be given to work that speaks to multiple fields or engages critically with those categories and boundaries that define past and present research on Asia.

In its twentieth year, the HEAS Conference is an annual forum for graduate students to exchange ideas and discuss research related to Asia. It is an opportunity for young scholars to present their research to their peers and to faculty members of Harvard University’s department of East Asian Languages and Civilizations. The conference also helps participants to meet others doing similar research and to forge new professional relationships.

Interested parties should apply via the online application form: http://tinyurl.com/znwom4g.

The application requires basic contact and background information as well as a 250-word abstract. The application deadline is November 15, 2016. Decisions will be emailed out in mid-December. Applicants whose papers are accepted will be required to submit their final drafts by February 1, 2017. The HEAS Conference Committee regrets that it is unable to provide travel stipends for participants and encourages participants to seek funding from their own departments.

1.  Applicants must be currently enrolled in a program of graduate study.
2.  Papers must be related to East Asia, Inner Asia or Southeast Asia.
3.  Abstracts must be no longer than 250 words.
4.  Deadline for abstract submission:  NOVEMBER 15, 2016.
