Interdisciplinary proposals are also welcome. In addition, the conference will feature a Teaching Asia Workshop, concerts, art exhibitions and cultural events.

Presentation topics may include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Notions of hybridity
  • Diaspora and migration
  • Global Asian cosmopolitanisms/transnational cultures
  • Impact of globalization

The deadline for submission is April 7, 2014.
