Copenhagen ADI Conference

26-28 June 2017 in Copenhagen, Denmark
The Asian Dynamics Initiative at University of Copenhagen announces its 9th annual international ADI conference to be held 26-28 June 2017.

The 2017 annual ADI conference addresses the question of ‘the Asian century’ that is yet to be fully examined. We attend to the ways in which new connected histories, flows and connections both within, and beyond, territoriality are taking shape. What kind of circulatory worlds are produced through these multiple connections forged across temporalities via commodity trade, investments, human migration, technology, tourism, religion, art, literature and other forms of cultural consumption? How has Asia historically circulated beyond its territorial boundaries? And how do these circulations shape the contemporary world?

The conference organzers invite abstracts for paper presentations addressing Asian circulations and dynamics in a global context, but especially welcome perspectives relating to one of the panels listed below. There is a panel with a direct South Asia focus, entitled "(En)countering sexual violence in the South Asian city". The deadline for submitting paper proposals is 1 March 2017. More information.
