Call for Papers ASAA 2020
Organised by an interdisciplinary committee, the ASAA 2020 conference is open to scholars, students and community members with an interest in Asia. The conference will be held at and sponsored by the University of Melbourne from 6-9 July 2020.
The theme of our conference is Future Asias.
Global recognition of the multiplicity of Asian communities, within Asia and in diverse Asian diasporas, including those in Australia, highlights the plurality of Asian identities. The dynamism of the Asian region is acknowledged across the disciplines. The organisers of ASAA 2020 ask that presenters explore this diversity and past or contemporary understandings of Asia, to reflect on where these plural Future Asias are headed.
We will be organising a series of roundtable discussions on the following interdisciplinary themes. Individual paper and Panel submissions related to these themes are particularly welcomed.
- Shifting inequalities in Asia
- Mobilities across Asias
- Australia in Asia/Asia in Australia
- Civil society in Asia
- Australia-Asia relations
- New spatio-political-economies of Asia
- Transitional justice
- Language diversities across Asia
