H-ASIA February 14, 2010 CFP New York Conf on Asian Studies (NYCAS 10) UNY Brockport, October 1-2, 2010 ************ From: "Ron Knapp" <email@example.com> Call for Papers--New York Conference on Asian Studies--NYCAS NYCAS 10 Call for Papers--New York Conference on Asian Studies SUNY Brockport, October 1-2, 2010 Plan NOW to participate in NYCAS 10. The State University of New York College at Brockport is looking forward to hosting the 46th Annual Meeting of the New York State Conference on Asian Studies (NYCAS) from October 1-2, 2010. Brockport is a suburb of Rochester – home to such global industries as Kodak, Xerox, Bosch & Lomb, R.F. Communications with visible involvement in Asia. While the Conference has a dual theme of Democracy in Asia and Men & Women of Asia, we welcome panels, individual papers, and roundtable proposals on all aspects of Asian history, geography, economics, politics, sociology, anthropology, literature as well as current developments on the continent of Asia. Today ’s Asia presents contrasting pictures of great successes as well as mired failures. The Conference would like to focus on all of them with penetrating insights into success stories as well as failures - their causes and solutions in today ’s well-connected global environment. Tomorrow ’s global peace largely depends on what happens in Asia – home of more than 3 ½ billion people. We are also planning to include a roundtable discussion to include Ambassador’s from South Asia, including Afghanistan. An effort is also being made to bring scholars from Asia for a more meaningful and focused academic interaction. Asia is defined to include East Asia, Southeast Asia, South Asia, and Southwest Asia - from Japan in the East to Turkey in the West. SUBMISSION GUIDELINES: Papers may be submitted individually or as part of organized panels. Creative panel formats that encourage discussion and exchange are especially welcomed, including panels in which some papers provide commentary on others or all papers share a narrow focus to provide a range of perspectives or interpretations. Comparative, cross-Asia panels are also welcomed. INDIVIDUAL PAPER proposals should include the full title and a brief abstract of the paper (250 words or less). Individual papers will be assigned to a panel according to topic and should be short enough to present in 15-20 minutes. A SELF- ORGANIZED PANEL consists of 3 or 4 papers organized around a common topic or theme, and a chair (who may also be one of the panelists). All panel proposals should include: a title and brief abstract of the panel (250 words or less) along with a title and brief abstract for each paper (250 words or less). Panels will run for an hour and a half, and papers should be short enough to allow for questions and discussion.
