[Call for Papers]: Southeast Asia and Taiwan Conference

Southeast Asia and Taiwan Conference
April 25-26, 2024
University of Washington, Seattle
Co-hosted by the UW Center for Southeast Asia & its Diasporas, Taiwan Studies Program, and East Asia Center

CfP online, conference in-person.

Southeast Asia and Taiwan have been linked for millennia by migrations of indigenous peoples and maritime trade. Today, both have become rising economies and embroiled within global political conflicts. This conference seeks to bring together scholars working on broad issues between Southeast Asia and Taiwan, historically and contemporary.

We invite scholars working in social sciences and humanities disciplines to present their ongoing research projects in a two-day workshop.

Participants will be expected to pre-circulate substantive works-in-progress, such as dissertation/manuscript chapters or journal articles.

Three nights of local accommodation, up to $250 in airfare subsidy, and meals will be provided for all participants. We especially welcome junior scholars (such as PhD candidates, postdoctoral fellows, non-tenure track and adjunct faculty).


Please send an abstract (250-350 words), title, and brief academic biography (1-2 paragraphs) as a single PDF file to seataiwan@uw.edu by September 1, 2023. If the abstract is for a part of a larger project (i.e. a manuscript, dissertation, etc.), please also provide brief context (2-3 sentences) of the larger project.

Submission deadline: September 1, 2023

Decision notification: September 15, 2023
