The New Zealand Asian Studies Society is pleased to announce a call for papers and panel abstract submissions for its 25th Biennial Conference to be held in Christchurch from 29 November to 1 December, 2023. This year’s conference will be hosted by the School of Language, Social and Political Sciences, University of Canterbury.
In an effort to prioritize the full breadth of the field of Asian Studies, NZASIA has selected the broad-based conference title – Rethinking Asia? In a time of rapid change in technology, society, and politics, NZASIA would like to see papers that consider newly emerging areas of study. At the same time, the question mark is meant to encourage scholars to consider areas of study that may not need new thinking, where increased depth of knowledge may be the best path forward. By focusing on the full breadth of Asian Studies at the conference, NZASIA hopes that scholars will each find something new to sample, something new to consider, perhaps even something new to research beyond their own discipline and area of expertise. In this way, everyone will expand to embrace a larger group of peers as they build up their understandings of Asia.
Our biennial conference is multidisciplinary and aims to bring together scholars working in all areas of Asian studies. NZASIA encourage papers and panels that explore any aspect of Asian studies, from any disciplinary or theoretical perspective.
NZASIA particularly seek contributions from emerging scholars and postgraduate students. NZASIA is planning to host a pre-conference postgraduate workshop and other events to support our next generation of scholars. They look forward to your participation in Christchurch at the end of 2023.
