Since the establishment of Asian Studies as part of the university curriculum, the discipline has faced many changes in being pushed to define and redefine itself, in the process reorienting its aims over time. As a reflection of human societies at large, disciplines and the agents that carry them have their internal conflicts and generational divides. Amid changes, some practices and paradigms are strengthened, while others lose their momentum.

The Department of Asian Studies at Palacký University invites scholars from Asian Studies and scholars from other disciplines whose work intersects with this discipline to reflect upon the development of Asian Studies. During this conference, which takes place on November 4, 2016 in the historical city of Olomouc in Czech Republic, we will discuss the introduction of new approaches to Asian Studies and reflect upon conventional or even forgotten methods. We welcome not only individual presentations that can be part of conventional panels, but also proposals for roundtable debates. We cordially invite teachers, researchers, and postgraduate students to propose presentations, which should be 20 minutes in length. The application for the conference should include: (1) title and abstract of the paper, 300 words maximum; and (2) full name, title, affiliation, short CV, and contact details of the presenter(s).

Deadlines:

  • The deadline for submitting abstracts: September 30, 2016
  • Information for notification of acceptance of abstracts: October 14, 2016

Participants will cover all their personal costs, including transportation, accommodation, visas, etc. Our staff can provide you with an invitation letter for embassies if necessary.

Conference theme:
In recent decades, the world has witnessed the enormous economic, social, cultural and political development of China. As the most populous country in the world, China’s transition process influences directly one fifth of the world’s population and indirectly almost all the rest of the world. Chinese economic activities cover the whole globe, Chinese living overseas constitute the largest diaspora, and China’s political and economic influence is significant. On the other hand, China and its government face many challenges, as Chinese society as well as the environment are affected by these massive processes. The conference theme is focused on the opportunities and potential threats China faces or will face in the near future.

We are seeking research presentations (20-30 minutes’ duration) or session proposals, which relate to these broad themes. These could include, but are not confined to, the following areas:

  • China and Asia, the world and supranational activities
  • China’s economy, its plans and reality
  • Social and economic processes within China
  • Labour and people transiting China (micro and macro perspectives)
  • Chinese abroad and the economic and social impacts on both China and the world
  • Legitimacy and the legal system
  • Negotiating growth and development – different approaches to the social and economic transition in China and the world (comparative studies, theories on development issues etc.)
  • The ecology of transitioning China

Deadlines:
The deadline for the Call for Sessions and Paper Abstracts is: 31st January 2014
Information for notification of acceptance of abstracts: 21st February 2014
The deadline for final registration for the conference: 9th March 2014
The deadline for full paper submissions: 4th May 2014 (submitted after the conference)

Conference fees: The conference is FREE OF CHARGE.

Note: Participants will cover all their personal costs, including transportation, accommodation, visas, etc. Our staff can provide you with an invitation letter for visa if necessary.
