Texas Asia Conference

Fri, February 11, 2011 | UTC 4.124 (welcome address, all panels, keynote addresses, and closing remarks) and WCH 4.118 (for breakfast and registration)

8:30 AM - 5:45 PM

The Texas Asia Conference at the University of Texas at Austin invites students working on original research projects across disciplines and across traditional academic divisions of Asia to present their work. The conference will provide graduate students with a dynamic forum inwhich to present their research and benefit from a scholarly exchange of ideas. We welcome applications from graduate students in all academic disciplines engaged in research on South, Southeast, Central, and East Asia, and their communities in the diaspora. All areas of study are invited: anthropology, art history, communication, ethnomusicology, history, literature, philology, political science, religion, sociology, women’s studies, and other related fields. Work which crosses disciplinary, spatial, and temporal boundaries is encouraged.

In addition to an exciting range of panel presentations and a lecture from two keynote speakers, a more casual program of receptions will provide ample time for less structured discussion and exchange, something essential to bringing together the wider community of students and professors. In the past, selected papers delivered at the conference were published in the South Asia Graduate Research Journal (SAGAR). We aim to publish selected papers again this year.
