The Carolina Asia Center will host a conference for Asia scholars in the UNC system on the topic of “New Directions in Asian Studies: An Interdisciplinary Conference from the UNC System.” Held on Friday, February 26, 2016, this full-day event will host scholars from a range of disciplines in a series of panels presenting published work, work-in-progress, and new ideas for projects just beginning. As a panAsia center, the Carolina Asia Center accepts presentations on different regions of Asia such as East, South and Southeast Asia. This is a great opportunity to network, share information and collaborate with Asia scholars within the UNC system.
The event will be free and open to the public but will emphasize collaborative feedback among all in attendance. The event will begin with a keynote speech, hopefully by one of our colleagues from the UNC General Administration.
Conference registration is required of those planning to present a paper at the conference. The Carolina Asia Center will provide funding to selected participants to pay for travel to Chapel Hill. Up to two nights of accommodations will be provided to those who are traveling from outside the Triangle area. Please send your one-page proposal/abstract and CV to email@example.com by January 15, 2016. On your proposal, please note whether or not you require any funding support for your travel.
