ASDP 28TH NATIONAL CONFERENCE

Knowing Practices Intersecting

4-6 March 2021

Virtual Conference

CONFERENCE THEME

The conference theme of Knowing Practices Intersecting invites reflection on how ways of knowing develop, intersect and evolve. These include the practices of embodied knowledge in, for example, traditional healing and martial arts, calligraphy and meditation, but also scientific and historiographical methods,  emotional and aesthetic ways of knowing, the interaction of education and neuroscience, and the creation of intelligent technology innovation hubs in Korea and China. 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. Since its inception the Asian Studies Development Program has worked to forge and highlight intersections between Asian and Western traditions and proposals highlighting such intersections are especially welcomed.
