Asian Studies Development Program 28th National Conference

  • 03/04/2021 03/06/2021

The Asian Studies Development Program National Conference is an interdisciplinary conference that fosters a broad conversation among participants, which includes teachers, learners, scholars, and administrators. In a welcoming and inclusive environment, the Conference works towards a better understanding of how Asian studies as an academic field continues to evolve across interdependent spheres of investigation and analysis.

The conference theme of “Knowing Practices Intersecting” invites reflection on how ways of knowing develop, intersect, and evolve. These include the practices of embodied knowledge in, for example, traditional healing and martial arts, calligraphy, and meditation, but also scientific and historiographical methods, emotional and aesthetic ways of knowing, the interaction of education and neuroscience, and the creation of intelligent technology innovation hubs in Korea and China. We encourage both scholarly and pedagogical approaches in examining the diversity of Asian cultures and societies, as well as the diversity of perspectives on Asia, especially those that adopt interdisciplinary lenses. Since its inception the Asian Studies Development Program has worked to forge and highlight intersections between Asian and Western traditions and proposals highlighting such intersections are especially welcomed.

Inequality, Labor, and Migration in East Asia Through the Prism of Global Pandemic Virtual Workshop

  • 03/18/2021 03/19/2021

Long-standing demographic changes will have serious implications for the nature of work, spatial mobility, and the overall distribution of resources in the countries of East Asia. Has the Coronavirus pandemic seriously affected any of the aforementioned areas and, if so, how? Join us for an inter- and cross-disciplinary workshop that explores the ongoing pandemic and its implications for inequality, labor, and migration in China, Hong Kong, Japan, the Korean peninsula, and Taiwan. We will hold two different workshops: Thursday evening (EST) on March 18th, 2021 and Friday afternoon (EST) on March 19th, 2021. Each workshop will begin with introductory remarks before moving to several short (approx. 20 minutes) presentations around the theme and will then conclude with several affinity group breakout rooms to further facilitate in-depth conversations. Participants from all disciplinary backgrounds and career stages are welcome, and we especially encourage advanced graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and fixed-term researchers to both present and participate.

If you are interested in participating, please complete the participant application (which includes your name, contact email, disciplinary training, title, professional affiliations (if any), a selection of research interest keywords, and a brief description of your current research interests that are applicable to the workshop theme) in the Qualtrics survey listed below by 11:59pm EST on Friday December 4th, 2020.
