CFP: Midwest Conference on Asian Affairs: Call for Papers (11 June; 1-3 Oct; Columbus, Ohio)
The East Asian Studies Center at The Ohio State University is pleased to host the 59th Midwest Conference on Asian Affairs (MCAA) from October 1-3, 2010 at the new Ohio Union in Columbus, Ohio. A regional conference of the Association of Asian Studies (AAS), MCAA has provided a forum for scholars and teachers of Asian Studies in the Midwest to gather and exchange knowledge about the history and cultures of Asia for over a half-century. The conference will feature panels and roundtables at which faculty and graduate and undergraduate students present and discuss new research and pedagogical tools.
Proposals for panels and individual papers from all academic disciplines on any topic involving Asia are currently being accepted. Submission of panels and individual papers that address the full range of literary production and consumption in print, performance, film, and digital media across the span of Asian history are especially encouraged. Panels and individual papers that cross boundaries, be it in regional, temporal, linguistic, disciplinary or other terms, are also particularly welcome.
The final deadline for submission is Friday, June 11, 2010. All proposals must be submitted electronically through the conference website at http://easc.osu.edu/mcaa. Presenters must be members of MCAA and must have pre-registered by Friday, September 3, 2010 to attend and present. The membership fee will be collected as part of the registration fee for the conference. Registration instructions are forthcoming.
