In recent years, there has been a wealth of scholarship from and about Asia on the movement of people, ideas, commodities, and objects through time and space; the politics, technologies, and infrastructures that allow or restrict these movements; and their representation in art, literature and film. This workshop seeks to bring together early-career scholars working on these topics to revisit and engage with the state-of-the-discipline(s), discuss their own contributions, share ideas and references, and receive feedback on works-in-progress in a small-group setting.
Participants will read pre-circulated papers in advance (20-30 pages), and the workshop time will be devoted to providing constructive feedback.
Scholars from institutions in the southeast will receive preference. Because funding is limited, selected participants will receive hotel lodging for one or two nights, but will be asked to take care of all other travel arrangements and expenses.
Abstracts (200-300 words) should be submitted by December 1, 2023 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name, affiliation, and preferred email address. The organizers will contact selected participants by January 2024.
March 22: Pre-circulated papers due
