Praxis Conference 2018: Translation Practices: Negotiating Difference, Abstracts due December 1, 2017.
Cornell Southeast Asia Program’s 20th Annual Graduate Student Conference, Cornell University, Ithaca, New York, March 9-11, 2018 - Abstracts due December 13, 2017
Possession and Persuasion conjure a range of images and concepts, from cultural performance, to the control and mobility of objects, bodies, and spaces, to modes of coercion, influence, and authority. The terms also evoke possibilities of resistance and transformation. How are entanglements of subjectivity and materiality at work across Southeast Asia? How have possessions and persuasions, broadly imagined, organized studies of Southeast Asia, and to what futures do they beckon?
Cornell Southeast Asia Program’s 20th Annual Southeast Asian Studies Graduate Student Conference invites submissions that engage these questions. The conference will be held March 9-11, 2018 at the Kahin Center for Advanced Research on Southeast Asia at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. Professor Chiara Formichi from the Department of Asian Studies at Cornell will deliver the keynote address.
We welcome submissions of abstracts by December 13, 2017 from graduate students who have completed original research related to Southeast Asia. There is no specific theme for this conference, as we hope to attract a wide range of submissions. Our intention is to reflect the dynamic research currently undertaken by graduate students. The Cornell Southeast Asia Program’s Graduate Committee will review submissions, select presenters, and organize panels by theme. Selected contributors will present their work as part of a panel, and paper abstracts will be included in the conference program. Each panel will have a faculty member serve as a discussant.
Please submit abstracts to firstname.lastname@example.org
All abstracts should be limited to 250 words and sent in MS Word format. Do not send a PDF file. Please name your abstract using your first and last name together (for example, janedoe.doc for Jane Doe's abstract). The subject of the message should specify “Abstract” and the body should include the following information:
• Author name(s), institutional affiliation(s), and a primary email address
• Title of paper
• Keywords to aid thematic organization
• The abstract

Southeast Asian Studies Graduate Student Conference 2018: Deconstructing Borders & Barriers, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, February 16, 2018 - Abstracts due December 15, 2017
The inaugural Southeast Asian Studies Graduate Student Conference at the University of Michigan invites applicants from all fields of study and levels to engage, connect with, and explore the topics of borders and boundaries in Southeast Asia and its diaspora. Historically, Southeast Asia and its diaspora have confronted issues relating to borders and barriers – of colonization, of citizenship, of diverse ethnic and religious groups, of movement and migration. These issues continue to develop into the present. How are borders created, maintained, and challenged? How do individuals and groups overcome these barriers and obstacles?
Participants are invited to give a 10-15 minute paper presentation. Contingent on interest, opportunities to present a poster or to workshop current drafts may be available.
Please submit a 250 word maximum abstract here.
UC Berkeley-UCLA Southeast Asian Studies Conference: Migrations and New Mobilities in Southeast Asia, UC Berkeley, April 27-28, 2018 - Abstracts due January 19, 2018.
Migrations have characterized Southeast Asian lives and livelihoods in different ways in different eras; they have affected work, settlement patterns, resource use, small and large investments, religion, and culture. Contributors to this conference will discuss continuities and changes in migration practices, patterns, and personnel, addressing a wide range of historical periods, disciplines, and themes. For this conference, we solicit papers on such topics as:
-labor migration and remittances;
-resource extractions, claims, and trade;
-shifting policies governing international movements of people, resources and capital; human rights issues raised by transnational migration;
-transformations in urban and rural spaces brought by domestic and transnational migrants;
-cultural changes and cultural productions associated with migrant, resource, and capital flows;
-the ways that mobilities have changed or are changing gender, generational, racial, and cultural relations in families, communities, and across nations.
We invite submissions for presentations from scholars and graduate students conducting original research in the social sciences and humanities that address the primary theme of the conference. Abstracts (up to 500 words) should be sent to CSEAS at UC Berkeley by Friday, January 19, 2018. Abstracts should include your name, affiliation and discipline and contact information (including e-mail address).

Call for Manuscripts: "Asian Politics"
Education About Asia (EAA) is the peer-reviewed teaching journal of the Association for Asian Studies. Our print and online readers include undergraduate instructors as well as high school and middle school teachers. Our articles are intended to provide educators and academics in the humanities and social sciences who are often not specialists with basic understanding of Asia-related content.
We are developing a special section for spring 2018 titled “Asian Politics.” We hope that this special section will include articles, essays, and reviews applicable to both history and social science courses. The following are suggested manuscript titles that might be appropriate for the issue but we certainly welcome other submission possibilities: "Asian Democracies: An Overview,” "Teaching about the Crisis on the Korean Peninsula,” “Anglo-American Historical Influences and Contemporary Asian Governments,” “The Han Dynasty and the Roman Empire in World History,” “The Rise of Asian Nationalism,” “Indonesia’s Political Prospects,” “Religion, Politics, and Contemporary India,” “The Geopolitical Ramifications of China’s Post-Mao Rise,” “Tokugawa Japan: Myths and Realities,” “Japan and the UK; Contemporary Politics and Government,” “Lee Kuan Yew’s Political Thought and Asia,” and “Civil Society in Contemporary Asia.”
Please consult Submissions to Education About Asia before submitting a manuscript for this special section. Please note our relatively modest feature article and teaching resources manuscript word-count ranges. Prospective authors who are unfamiliar with EAA should also read archived articles and essays available at no charge in the website below my signature.
Since approximately half of EAA readers teach at the undergraduate level and approximately half of readers are secondary school teachers, we seek suitable manuscripts that are useful for instructors and/or students in undergraduate survey and high school courses such as government, world history, economics, human geography, and cultural anthropology as well as introductory Asia-related survey courses. We are not interested in manuscripts that would be intended for upper-level undergraduate courses in Asian studies.
Prospective authors are strongly encouraged to email the Editor, Lucien Ellington, at firstname.lastname@example.org. 1-3 paragraph descriptions of possible manuscript ideas and will receive prompt replies to queries.
Manuscripts for this special section should be submitted on or before January 8th , 2018 to email@example.com.
