ASPAC 2016 Conference

We invite college and university faculty, K-12 schoolteachers, independent scholars and graduate and undergraduate students with an interest in Asian or Asian diaspora studies to submit proposals for organized panels, roundtable discussions, individual papers or poster presentations on historical or contemporary topics in the humanities, arts, social sciences, education, health, law, business, environmental sciences or other allied disciplines related to East, South, or Southeast Asia and their diasporas. With Southern California as our venue, we especially welcome proposals that connect theory, method, or practice to contemporary or historical questions of urbanization, migration, exchange and sustainability within, across, or alongside Asia. We look forward to a wide-ranging discussion of diverse subjects such as administrative, economic, and cultural clustering; sprawl, green space, gentrification, and deurbanization; borders and borderlands, glass ceilings, and other conduits and barriers to social, economic, or geographic mobility; group identity, assimilation and multiculturalism; diverse forms—technological, political, economic, cultural, educational—of communication, exchange, and cross-fertilization; and diverse responses—political, social, literary, artistic—to demographic, environmental, political, and technological change.
