The Program Committee for the AAS-in-ASIA conference seeks proposals dealing with all regions of Asia on subjects covering a wide range of scholarly disciplines and professional fields under the broad theme: Asia in Motion: Geographies and Genealogies. Derived from the Greco-Roman conception of the world, the concept of Asia has a perverse genealogy as Europe’s other. Asians have thus experienced 'Asia' in ephemeral, uneven, and fleeting modes. At its heart lie the limits of inherited geographical categories. Nevertheless, the concept of Asia retains great power in the political imagination. It serves as a critique of geography as a historical category and of the Asian nation-states that are today asserting themselves politically, economically, and geographically by invoking older and mythic forms of Asian culture and genealogies. The organizers invite proposals that interrogate received ideas of Asia and conceive of new spatial and temporal imaginings, and that explore, understand, and reassert those Asias that exist beyond conventional political geographies.

The deadline for proposal submissions is November 15, 2017, at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.
