ASDP 27TH NATIONAL CONFERENCE

Understanding Asia, Asian Understandings: Perspectives Past and Present

5-7 March 2020

Atlanta, GA

CONFERENCE THEME:

The theme Understanding Asia, Asian Understandings: Perspectives Past and Present invites reflection on the effects of perspective on cultural interactions and how unshared assumptions often frame historical, artistic, literary, philosophical, and social scientific accounts of those interactions.

The ASDP National Conference intends to spur a broader conversation among participants – teachers, learners, scholars, and administrators – who aim to achieve a better understanding of how Asian studies as an academic field continues to evolve across interdependent spheres of investigation and analysis.

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, and including Asian encounters with such global phenomena as colonialism, imperialism, militarism, industrialization, and revolution.

Of particular interest are presentations that investigate how:

  • new scholarship sheds distinctive light on familiar aspects of the Asian cultural, historical, and social canons
     
  • Asian narratives addressing art, music, culture, philosophy, and the social sciences gain depth when re-positioned within interdisciplinary perspectives
     
  • Asian perspectives shed new and perhaps critical light on cultural, historical, and social canons with other-than-Asian origins
     
CALL FOR PAPERS AND PROPOSAL GUIDELINES:
  • Sessions are 90 minutes. Please plan presentations and papers accordingly to include time for a 15-minute Q & A at session end
     
  • Tech Support: projector, and screen.  No internet in breakout rooms
