InterAsian Connections VI: Hanoi
(December 47, 2018)

Applications due February 28, 2018
InterAsian Connections VI: Hanoi is the sixth in a series of conferences showcasing innovative research from across the social sciences and related disciplines that explores themes that transform conventional understandings of Asia. Crossing traditional area studies boundaries and creating international and interdisciplinary networks of scholars working to theorize the intersection of the “global” and the “regional” in a variety of contexts, the conference reconceptualizes Asia as a dynamic and interconnected historical, geographical, and cultural formation stretching from West Asia through Eurasia, South Asia and Southeast Asia, to East Asia.

Joint proposals are invited from scholars from any world region who are interested in co-organizing and codirecting a thematic workshop that addresses one of the following broadly conceived themes. All workshop directors must hold a PhD degree and have significant experience in conducting independent research, holding research workshops, and evaluating and commenting on a variety of research proposals and papers.

  1. Sites of InterAsian Interaction
  2. Territorial Sovereignties and Historical Identities
  3. Transregional Religious Networks
  4. Environmental Humanities in Asia
  5. Rethinking Conceptual Frameworks for the Rise of Asian Cities
  6. Infrastructures and Networks
