The School of Pacific and Asian Studies (SPAS) at the University of Hawaii at Manoa (UHM) seeks papers, performances, and panel proposals for its 24th annual graduate student conference. The conference will be held on the UHM campus in Honolulu, HI on April 3-5, 2013. The theme this year is CONTINUITY, CHANGE, AND CONTESTATION: MULTIDISCIPLINARY AND TRANSNATIONAL PERSPECTIVES ON THE ASIA-PACIFIC.
In particular, we are looking for papers that:
Incorporate multidisciplinary approaches
Challenge approaches based on a national or regional focus
Engage new and emerging trends in Pacific and/or Asian Studies
Involve any original research on Asia and/or the Pacific
Present Asian and/or Pacific performance practices
As this year’s theme indicates, we are interested in accepting papers, performances, and panel proposals that continue, change, and/or contest disciplinary and regional approaches to the study of the Asia/Pacific. With this goal in mind, we also encourage those with a background in the arts to apply with performance proposals.
