Since the establishment of Asian Studies as part of the university curriculum, the discipline has faced many changes in being pushed to define and redefine itself, in the process reorienting its aims over time. As a reflection of human societies at large, disciplines and the agents that carry them have their internal conflicts and generational divides. Amid changes, some practices and paradigms are strengthened, while others lose their momentum.

The Department of Asian Studies at Palacký University invites scholars from Asian Studies and scholars from other disciplines whose work intersects with this discipline to reflect upon the development of Asian Studies. During this conference, which takes place on November 4, 2016 in the historical city of Olomouc in Czech Republic, we will discuss the introduction of new approaches to Asian Studies and reflect upon conventional or even forgotten methods. We welcome not only individual presentations that can be part of conventional panels, but also proposals for roundtable debates. We cordially invite teachers, researchers, and postgraduate students to propose presentations, which should be 20 minutes in length. The application for the conference should include: (1) title and abstract of the paper, 300 words maximum; and (2) full name, title, affiliation, short CV, and contact details of the presenter(s).

Deadlines:

  • The deadline for submitting abstracts: September 30, 2016
  • Information for notification of acceptance of abstracts: October 14, 2016
