CALL FOR PAPERS
DEADLINE: Friday, June 24, 2011
Inter-Asian Connections III: Hong Kong (June 6-8, 2012)
The Hong Kong Institute for Humanities and Social Sciences (HKIHSS) at the University of Hong Kong, the National University of Singapore (NUS), and the Social Science Research Council (SSRC) (the Organizers) are pleased to announce an open call for individual research paper submissions from researchers in any world region, to participate in a 3-day thematic workshop at an international conference, "Inter-Asian Connections III: Hong Kong."
To be held in Hong Kong, June 6-8, 2012 and hosted by HKIHSS, the conference will include concurrent workshops, coordinated by individual directors and showcasing innovative research from across the social sciences and related disciplines. Workshops will focus on themes of particular relevance to Asia, reconceptualized as a dynamic and interconnected historical, geographical, and cultural formation stretching from the Middle East through Eurasia and South Asia, to East Asia.
The conference structure and schedule have been designed to enable intensive 'working group' interactions on a specific research theme, as well as broader interactions on topics of mutual interest and concern. Accordingly, there will be a public keynote and plenary sessions in addition to closed workshop sessions. The concluding day of the conference will bring all the conference participants together for the public presentation and exchange of research agendas that have emerged over the course of the conference deliberations.
Individual paper submissions are invited from junior and senior scholars, whether graduate students or faculty, or researchers in NGOs or other research organizations, for the following six workshops:
- Anatomies of Knowledge: Medicine, Science, and Health in Asia
Workshop Directors - Angela Ki Che Leung (Hong Kong Institute for the Humanities and Social Sciences, The University of Hong Kong) and Izumi Nakayama (The University of Hong Kong)
- Asian Crossings, 1789-1914
Workshop Directors - Ross Forman (National University of Singapore) and Julia Kuehn (The University of Hong Kong)
- Just Society at Last? Ideals and Projects of the Common Good across Asia
Workshop Directors - Syed Muhd Khairudin Aljunied (National University of Singapore) and Morgan Y. Liu (The Ohio State University)
- Networks of Religious Learning and the Dissemination of Religious Knowledge across Asia
Workshop Directors - Christophe Jaffrelot (Centre d'Etudes et de Recherches Internationales,Sciences Po) and Mirjam Künkler (Princeton University)
- Shifting Geopolitical Ecologies and New Spatial Imaginaries
Workshop Directors - Çağlar Keyder (Boğaziçi University) and Ravi Arvind Palat (State University of New York at Binghamton)
- Sustainability and Citizenship in Asian Cities
Workshop Directors - Anne M. Rademacher (New York University), K. Sivaramakrishnan (Yale University) and Billy Kee-long So (Hong Kong University of Science and Technology)
Descriptions of the individual workshops, including information on the application process and the required application cover sheet are available at: http://www.ssrc.org/programs/pages/interasia-program/conference-on-inter-asian-connections-iii-hong-kong-june-6-8-2012/.
Application materials are due by Friday, June 24, 2011. Please note that an individual cannot apply to more than one workshop. Selection decisions will be announced in August 2011. Accepted participants are required to submit a DRAFT 20-25 page research paper by February 1, 2012; final papers are due April 15, 2012.
The Organizers will make every effort to ensure some level of funding for participants toward the costs associated with attending the Inter-Asian Connections III conference. However, at this point we plan to offer the following financial assistance - a) single room accommodations including breakfast, b) local transport to/from the conference site daily, c) lunch on-site, and d) dinner on two evenings. We cannot currently cover any airfare costs, and thus we encourage participants to seek funding from external agencies (such as their home institutions). We will not be able to confirm final details about funding availability until after the selection process has been completed.
For additional inquiries, please contact the Organizers at interasia at ssrc.org<mailto:interasia at ssrc.org>.
This event is organized and co-sponsored by The Hong Kong Institute for the Humanities and Social Sciences (HKIHSS) at the University of Hong Kong, the National University of Singapore (NUS), and the Social Science Research Council (SSRC).
