Spirituality, Healthcare And Social Movements In East Asia: A Transnational Perspective

CfP: the 1st EANASE international conference

The East Asian Network for the Academic Study of Esotericism (EANASE) invites you to consider sending a proposal for an online conference to be held on Zoom every Saturday of November 2021. EANASE’s first conference aims to offer the chance to reflect on the intertwined relationship between spirituality, healthcare and social movements in East Asia from a trans-national/local/cultural perspective. As a time of unprecedented changes and accelerated global interactions, the focus of the conference lies on the period between the nineteenth and the twentieth-first centuries. The emergence of new religious movements like Theosophy, Falungong and Taireido, or the worldwide popularisation of, for instance, acupuncture, reiki and hypnosis, challenge reductionist binary views of East/West, tradition/modernity, science/religion. Likewise, the recent dissemination of New Age practices across East Asia or the ongoing study of Buddhist meditation by American and European psychiatrists seem to reflect broader concerns that, for the past two centuries or so, have ignored national and cultural borders – and whose wider social implications are now more visible than ever.

For more information on the conference and on potential themes, please visit the dedicated website and please consider sending us a paper proposal by 1 September 2021.

“China and Global History” Online Workshop

Since the late 20th century, the concept of “Global History” has gained increasing popularity in Western academia. Global History generally denotes a perspective of history which includes various levels of analysis beyond the nation-state-focused mainstream of modern-era historiography. In recent decades, translations of the term and discussions of its relevance have increasingly entered the academic discourse in China as well.

The present workshop includes senior and post-doc researchers as keynote speakers and session chairs/commentators, as well as a number of upcoming researchers (mostly PhD candidates) as panel presenters, all with contributions related to the topic “China and Global History”. For more detailed information please see the link to the workshop handout below.

Conference on Tang-Song Transitions

Call for papers for Conference on Tang-Song Transitions, June 2022

Since 2015, the annual Workshop on Tang-Song Transitions has been the venue for innovative and interdisciplinary work on the multiple changes encompassing the eighth through thirteenth centuries in China. For June 16-18, 2022, we plan a larger three-day conference at Princeton University to deepen our discussions and extend them in new directions. We envision as many as eight topical panels, typically of four papers each, ranging across multiple fields, comprising scholars of all ranks including advanced PhD students, and scheduled sequentially so that all Conference participants are present at every panel.

Topics on which we would welcome contributions include: literary culture; society and social change; religious culture and practice; institutions and institutional history; art and architecture; regional differences and dynamics; interactions with or among border states and peoples; historiography and the problem of “transition.” On these or other pertinent topics we invite individual-paper abstracts or whole-panel proposals (in the latter case with abstracts of all included papers), with individual papers to be assembled into panels by the organizers. Panels will not include dedicated discussants, as on the model of the Workshop we expect discussion to come from the whole group of participants. Because the focus of the Conference is on the problem of change from Tang through Song, each paper should draw on sources from at least two of three historical periods: Tang, tenth century, and Song.

The Conference will continue the practice of the Workshop, which has been to require papers and relevant primary texts to be submitted to the Conference website for circulation a month before we meet; panel time will thus be dedicated to the discussion of papers rather than their presentation. Transportation, lodging, and meals will be covered for all accepted panelists. We also welcome attendance by interested guests of all academic ranks, space allowing. Please send individual-paper or panel proposals by October 1, 2021, to the organizers, Professors Anna Shields and Robert Hymes, at ctst2022@princeton.edu. For information on a sample past meeting of the Workshop, see https://tang-song-workshop.princeton.edu/.

CFP: RADICALISM and REFORM | 19th-C. Studies Assoc. Conference

RADICALISM & REFORM
The 43rd Annual Conference
Nineteenth-Century Studies Association
Rochester, New York
March 16-19, 2022
Proposal Deadline: September 30, 2021

Conference Website: https://ncsaweb.net/conferences/2022-ncsa-conference-information/
Join NCSA’s mailing list: https://mailchi.mp/4b3379af336e/ncsamailinglist

Inspired by the history of radicalism and reform in Rochester, New York, the NCSA committee invites proposals exploring the radical possibilities of the nineteenth-century world. From the aftershocks of the French and American revolutions to mutinies and rebellion in colonies across the globe, the nineteenth century was a period of both unrest and possibility. Abolition, suffrage, and reform movements reshaped prisons, education, and housing, marking this century as a period of institutional making and unmaking: a reckoning with ills of the past that was also profoundly optimistic about a more just and prosperous future.
Radicalism is also a generative term for considering transitional moments or social tensions: “radical” is often used interchangeably with “extreme,” but its earliest definitions describe not what is new or unusual, but what is foundational or essential. “Radical” is used to describe literal and figurative roots: the roots of plants, roots of musical chords, and the roots of words. To be radical is to embody tensions between origins and possibilities: to be anchored in what is foundational while also holding the potential for paradigm-shifting change. We welcome papers that consider these tensions in nineteenth-century culture, as well as those that consider possibilities for reforming nineteenth-century studies or academic life. Topics on nineteenth-century literature, history, art, music, or other cultural forms might include political movements or divisions, activism, resistance, labor, collective and direct action, or mutinies and rebellion. We also encourage broader interpretations of the conference theme: outsiders and outcasts, visionaries, agents of change, utopias, breakthroughs, failed reforms, conformity, or stagnation.

Topics on the state of nineteenth-century studies might include politically engaged teaching and scholarship, academic labor practices, harassment or prejudice in the academy, or new approaches to humanities education.

Spirituality, Healthcare And Social Movements In East Asia: A Transnational Perspective

CFP: 1st EANASE conference (held on Zoom every Saturday of November 2021)

This conference aims to offer the chance to reflect on the intertwined relationship between spirituality, healthcare and social movements in East Asia from a trans-national/local/cultural perspective. As a time of unprecedented changes and accelerated global interactions, the focus of the conference lies on the period between the nineteenth to the twentieth-first centuries. The emergence of new religious movements like Theosophy, Falungong and Taireido, or the popularisation of acupuncture, reiki and hypnosis worldwide, for instance, challenge reductionist binary views of East/West, tradition/modernity, science/religion. Likewise, the recent dissemination of New Age practices across East Asia or the ongoing study of Buddhist meditation by American and European psychiatrists seem to reflect broader concerns that, for the past two centuries or so, have ignored national and cultural borders – and whose wider social implications are more visible than ever.

– Potential themes and sub-themes could include but are not limited to:
– Interactions between global and local concerns in the emergence of new religious movements
– Connections of the above with modern corporate philosophies
– The popularisation of psychology and psychical research
– Mind-cure movements
– Spirituality, healthcare and the arts and literature; Orientalism, counterculture and the New Age;
– East Asian healing traditions as complementary and alternative therapies
– The dissemination of East Asian spiritual traditions
– Spirituality, healthcare and scientific disciplines
– Western esotericism in East Asia

For more information on the conference, please visit the dedicated website and please consider sending us a paper proposal by 1 September 2021. Paper proposals must include a short author bio (up to 50 words), a paper title and an abstract of no more than 300 words and 3-5 keywords about the proposed presentation.

Holy Waters: An Interdisciplinary Examination of Religion and Alcohol

With an increase in academic programs related to viniculture and brewing science, the time is ripe for contributions from the humanities and social sciences. We believe the theories and methods of religious studies have important contributions to offer studies of alcohol. Thus, we seek to bring together scholars from across disciplines to examine the historical, social, ritual, economic, political and cultural relationship between religion and alcohol across time periods and around the world. The goal of the workshop is to create an edited volume with broad appeal that will advance research on religion and alcohol.

Participants will be selected from submissions. Care will be given to ensure broad interdisciplinary representation as well as a balance of junior and senior scholars and we will seek to assure representation of underrepresented groups. The workshop will be held on March 4-6, 2022 at Western Michigan University. Funding will be available to help offset travel costs.
Manuscript drafts will be pre-circulated to all participants. Participants will be asked to revise their manuscripts based on workshop feedback and to submit a revised manuscript to the editors by July 1, 2022 with the goal of submitting the book manuscript to the publisher by spring 2023.

Submissions: To submit a proposal for consideration, please email an abstract of approximately 250 words and a brief C.V. (2 pages) to ryan.r.lemasters@wmich.edu. The title of your abstract should be your last name and be sent as a PDF. The subject line of the email should appear as follows “Holy Waters.” The deadline to submit is October 1, 2021.

READING MAHĀYĀNA SCRIPTURE

The Faculty of Oriental Studies, University of Oxford, with support from Glorisun, is pleased to invite scholars to submit paper titles and abstracts to the forthcoming conference on ‘Reading Mahāyāna Scripture,’ to be held on 25-26th September 2021. Our Keynote Speaker will be Prof. Paul Harrison, George Edwin Burnell Professor of Religious Studies at Stanford University.

The last century of Mahāyāna Buddhism research tended to focus on its origins and history, the translation of key texts, and mapping the broad field of its religious content. While these themes are by no means exhausted and much fruitful scholarship continues to this day, such background work provides a foundation upon which further studies of Mahāyāna literature can proceed. A key element of this is the ways in which the reading of such scripture has and does take place. We therefore welcome submissions of paper proposals related to the reading of Mahāyāna sūtra, śāstra and other literature in Sanskrit, Chinese, Tibetan and any other classical and modern languages. This includes but is not limited to the following broad categories:

• Practice-oriented and scholarly modes of recitation, reading and study
• Orality, language and rhetoric of the texts
• Philological and text-historical readings
• Critical editing and translation as close reading
• Reader reception and reading communities

Scholars at all stages of their careers as well as graduate students are welcome and encouraged to make submissions. We are presently planning on using a hybrid format of both in-person and online paper presentations pending on conditions at the time. An option for remote online presentation will remain open whatever the circumstances. Subsidies for travel and accommodation will be available.

Paper titles and abstracts no longer than 400 words should be submitted by 29th May 2021, via the online form. Any related correspondence or queries should be directed to oubuddhism@gmail.com.

Vietnam Studies Symposium: Silences and Reverberations

“Silences and Reverberations: Studying Historical and Contemporary Vietnam,” a one-day online symposium, brings together junior and senior scholars, graduate and undergraduate students, and interested members of the public to consider the study of historical and contemporary Vietnam from a range of disciplinary perspectives. Structured around two 30-minute keynote addresses and three 75-minute thematic roundtable discussions, panels will collectively lay out the scope of Vietnamese Studies and explore possible future directions. Speakers from across North America, Europe, and Vietnam, with specializations in anthropology, history, Asian languages and cultures, geography, political philosophy, and sociology will seek to answer questions that showcase the diversity of fields and methodologies that are essential to understanding the richness of Vietnam’s past and present, and its future in a rapidly developing global and local environment.

The symposium has four related goals. First, it is aimed to exchange and develop methodological innovations across multiple disciplines engaged in the study of Vietnam, including area studies, the humanities, and the social sciences. Second, it is designed to promote to the wider academic communities the study and teaching of Vietnam in relation to East, South, and Southeast Asia. Third, it is designed to help emerging scholars expand and deepen their connections with other Vietnam Studies scholars. Finally, it is designed to initiate comparative discussions with other East, South, and Southeast Asia specialists, who will help moderate the panels.

“China and Global History” International Online Workshop

Since the late 20th century, the concept of “Global History” has gained increasing popularity in Western academia. Global History generally denotes a perspective of history which includes various levels of analysis beyond the nation-state-focused mainstream of modern-era historiography. In recent decades, translations of the term and discussions of its relevance have increasingly entered the academic discourse in China as well.

The aim of the present workshop is to support academic networking, exchange, and discussion among young researchers interested in China-related global history and historiography. Participants will be invited to present their research and act as commentators, as well as session chairs.

A non-exhaustive list of possible research questions includes the following:
• How can terms like “empire”, “world-system(s)”, “world-region” and other analytical approaches/categories of Global History be used to explain historical events and developments in dynastic/modern China in a global context?
• How does a regional East Asian perspective of history contribute to the global view?
• Did China have a pre-modern tradition of world/global historiography? If yes, how can it be characterized (in terms of geographical scope and perspective, ideology, etc.)?
• How is the growing interest towards a global perspective of Chinese history related to China’s (re)emergence as a global power?

The workshop will be held online on 1-3 September 2021. Submitting a research paper is not a requirement for participation. If you are interested in presenting at the workshop, please send your name, academic degree, current academic affiliation, and an abstract of 300-500 words to the organizer of the workshop Sebestyén Hompot (sebestyen.hompot@univie.ac.at). The deadline for submissions is June 1, 2021.

A committee consisting of Ph.D. candidates from the University of Vienna and University of Graz will decide on the final selection of the presentations and organize the program so that colleagues from various time zones will be able to participate. The finalized program will be announced by July 1, 2021 and the deadline for registration will be August 1, 2021. A decision on the potential publication of the presentations will be taken in a final round of discussions at the end of the workshop.

Other Bodies: Disability and Bodily Impairment in Early and Medieval China

What constituted ‘disability’ in early and medieval China? What were the limits of ability and disability in the eyes of Chinese society of the time? How were physical and mental impairments perceived and how (or to what extent) were the disabled to be cared for? This workshop brings together academics to discuss these questions and examine topics relating to disability and bodily impairment in early and medieval Chinese history, with an eye on their socio-political implications. Drawing on the field of Disability History, we examine ‘disability’ not merely as an individual ailment but as a social construct, which in turn sheds light on the cultural values and worldviews of a given society.

Please join us online, 19-21 April 2021. Attendance is free (but registration required).

Oxford Hong Kong Forum — “The future of Hong Kong: Reimagining glocal citizenship”

Oxford University Hong Kong Scholars Association (OxHKScholars) is hosting our inaugural Oxford Hong Kong Forum, with the title “The future of Hong Kong: Reimagining glocal citizenship”, on 10–11 April 2021 9–2 pm (BST) virtually to foster discussions on and about Hong Kong. The cosmopolitan metropolis we call home is blessed with strong local identities. As we embrace our unique positions in the world, OxHKScholars organises this forum with the aim to attract both Hong Kongers and foreigners to learn about different aspects of Hong Kong through meaningful conversations.

Hong Kong has always been an ever-changing city for more than a century, vivid and energetic. Amidst some of the most significant social incidents in decades, Hong Kong once again finds itself at multiple crossroads. Rather than engaging in Hong Kong through a mere conceptual or academic lens, the Forum will put the spotlight back on Hong Kongers, the living, authentic, and individualistic Hong Kongers. The Forum, like a movie, will uncover untold Hong Kong stories and bring the focus back to its people – be it born-and-bred Hong Kongers, settled communities, transient migrants, or any international audience who holds interest in Hong Kong. Our panel speakers are all candid Hong Kongers coming from a diverse background spanning across multiple industries, age group, ethnicities, and timezones. They will each be telling their own uniquely inspiring stories to the world, yet they will all be orating the ever-evolving chronicle of the global Hong Kong citizens.

Aiming to provide a panoramic picture of Hong Kong, the event will be held in a conference style, consisting of plenary sessions, panel discussions, and talks on four main themes. For each aspect, there will be three sessions, each of which includes two to three guest speakers and a moderator. The four themes are: Hong Kong Culture and History, Hong Kong Environment and Sustainable Development, Hong Kong Society, and Innovation in Hong Kong.

Oxford China Forum

Founded by University of Oxford students in 2013, Oxford China Forum is Europe’s largest student-led academic conference on the study of modern China. More than 2,600,000 audience members have viewed OCF talks and recordings since 2018.

OCF’s 2021 Forum will run on March 19th-22nd, featuring events on Culture, Comedy, Fandoms, International Relations, Involution, Technology, and Feminism. The Forum has confirmed a list of distinguished guests: former UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon will be the Keynote Speaker at the Opening Ceremony, and Marco Lambertini, Director General of the WWF, will speak at the Forum as well.

Global Asias Cyber Chats

Verge: Studies in Global Asias—in partnership with the AAS and with the support of the Henry Luce Foundation—is hosting a second series of virtual conversations or “Cyber Chats” this spring to continue developing the conceptual horizons and institutional possibilities of Global Asias scholarship. We aim to bring scholars working with Global Asias approaches, topics, and orientations into conversation to identify some of the opportunities and challenges inherent in this emerging multidisciplinary knowledge formation.

We would love to be in conversation with you and look forward to using these Cyber Chats to create collaborative spaces for people to think through these issues together. This is an open format conversation via zoom but to limit the size of the group we will use an application process. Application forms due by Friday, April 2.
