CFP : Migrations and New Mobilities in Southeast Asia

CFP : UC Berkeley – UCLA Southeast Asian Studies Conference : Migrations and New Mobilities in Southeast Asia, 27-28/04/2018, UC Berkeley

Conference chair: Prof. Nancy Lee Peluso (Environmental Science, Policy & Management, UC Berkeley)

The aim of this conference, jointly sponsored by the Center for Southeast Asia Studies at UC Berkeley (Director: Prof. Pheng Cheah) and the Center for Southeast Asian Studies at UCLA (Director: Prof. George Dutton), is to look anew at issues concerning migration and Southeast Asia.

Migrations have characterized Southeast Asian lives and livelihoods in different ways in different eras; they have affected work, settlement patterns, resource use, small and large investments, religion, and culture. Migrations have formed and changed the composition of Southeast Asian societies and given rise to complex cultural, social, environmental, and political problems and opportunities. Past and present, migrations have been both forced and voluntary: forced to make way for certain kinds of development; triggered by violence and war; but also intentional and, at times, pioneering: to change lives, secure new livelihoods, or explore new ecologies.

Contributors to this conference will discuss continuities and changes in migration practices, patterns, and personnel, addressing a wide range of historical periods, disciplines, and themes. For this conference, we solicit papers on such topics as:

  • labor migration and remittances;
  • resource extractions, claims, and trade;
  • shifting policies governing international movements of people, resources and capital; human rights issues raised by transnational migration;
  • transformations in urban and rural spaces brought by domestic and transnational migrants;
  • cultural changes and cultural productions associated with migrant, resource, and capital flows;
  • the ways that mobilities have changed or are changing gender, generational, racial, and cultural relations in families, communities, and across nations.

The two centers invite submissions for presentations from scholars and graduate students conducting original research in the social sciences and humanities that address the primary theme of the conference. Abstracts (up to 500 words) should be sent to CSEAS at UC Berkeley by Friday, January 19, 2018. Abstracts should include your name, affiliation and discipline and contact information (including e-mail address).

The conference is open to all. Some travel funding is available for faculty and graduate students at UC and CSU campuses.

CALL for proposals : AAS-in-ASIA 2018

Call for proposals : AAS-in-Asia 2018 : Asia in Motion: Geographies and Genealogies, 05-08/07/2018, India Habitat Centre, New Delhi

On behalf of the Association for Asian Studies (AAS) and Ashoka University, India we are pleased to invite you to submit organized panels and roundtable proposals (no individual paper proposals accepted) to be presented at the fifth AAS-in-ASIA Conference to be held between the 5th and 8th of July, 2018 at the India Habitat Centre in New Delhi, India.

Keynote speaker : James C. Scott, Sterling Professor of Political Science and Professor of Anthropology and co-Director of the Agrarian Studies Program at Yale University.

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. We particularly 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 Delhi venue of the AAS-in-Asia, is an opportune place to pose these questions as, being on the margins of Asia, the subcontinent has always confounded the geographic and genealogical imagination of Asia.  Panels are welcomed from scholars in disciplines across the field of Asian studies, wherever they may be based academically, and are especially encouraged from scholars representing academic communities that are relatively underrepresented in international meetings. One of the goals of this AAS-in-ASIA conference is to foster lines of dialogue and scholarly communication that cross the ordinary (often nation-specific) boundaries of academic networks. Please note: The program committee will strongly favor and give preference to proposals that include participants from two or more countries, whether the panel focuses on a single nation or culture or focuses on some comparative dimension. The program discourages panel proposals from a group of scholars coming from the same institution. Generally speaking, panels with diverse (gender, academic rank, national origin, disciplinary approach) participation will be favored over narrowly constructed panels. Panels with topics that make some link to the conference theme also will be favored. 

The deadline for proposal submissions is November 15, 2017, at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. All proposals must be submitted electronically via the proposal submission website.

After submission, your proposal will be forwarded to the program committee for review. You will find detailed instructions for submissions below. You may also access detailed information about the conference (FAQs, venue, transportation, program, accommodations, etc.) on the full 2018 AAS-in-ASIA conference website.

If you have any question regarding panel participation that is not answered in this Call for Proposals or FAQ, (pre-submission questions concerning format, possible participants or relevance of a potential panel topic to the overall conference theme) please submit your questions to Dr. Krisna UK, AAS Director of Outreach and Strategic Initiatives, at krisnauk@asian-studies.org.

For technical assistance regarding use of the online application submission system, contact the AAS at aasinasia@asian-studies.org.

Call for paper: Special Section @ Agrarian transformation in Thailand – commodities, landscapes, and livelihoods

Over the last two decades, there have been extensive discussions about the priorities and processes of agrarian and rural transformation in Thailand. The production and value systems surrounding agricultural transformation involves the overall restructuring of a subsistence-oriented economy to a market-oriented one. Agricultural households are increasingly prioritizing and becoming more dependent on intensive and specialized production of cash crops. Rural livelihoods are also relying more on off-farm income generated by local urban centers or remittances sent back from migrant workers. Although outmigration and the remittance economy has supported rural households, there are also other consequences, most evident in the scarcity and changing labor practices in agricultural sectors. This transformation is affecting rural society in perplexing ways, such as the decline in poverty rates, the increasing levels of economic differentiation, improving access to education, and the perceived withering of community solidarity. These trends of agrarian transformation reflexively interact with broader developments in Thai society, related to an increasing population, processes of urbanization, public policy interventions, natural resources limitations, and changing societal values.

InterAsian Connections VI: Hanoi (2018)

Hanoi, Vietnam – September 19, 2014: View of people crossing the Huc Bridge in the middle of Hoan Kiem Lake in Hanoi, Vietnam.

Conference on InterAsian Connections VI: Hanoi , 4-7/12/2018
Hosted by the Vietnam Academy of Social Sciences

Organized by: Social Science Research Council InterAsia Program, Duke University Global Asia Initiative, Göttingen University Global and Transregional Studies Platform, the Hong Kong Institute for the Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Hong Kong, Asia Research Institute at the National University of Singapore, Seoul National University Asia Center, Vietnam Academy of Social Sciences, and Yale University – collectively the Organizers.

Request for Workshop Proposals

InterAsian Connections VI: Hanoi is the sixth in a series of conferences showcasing innovative research from across the social sciences and related disciplines that explores themes that transform conventional understandings of Asia. Crossing traditional area studies boundaries and creating international and interdisciplinary networks of scholars working to theorize the intersection of the “global” and the “regional” in a variety of contexts, Asia is reconceptualized as a dynamic and interconnected historical, geographical, and cultural formation stretching from West Asia through Eurasia, South Asia and Southeast Asia, to East Asia.

The 2018 Hanoi conference—comprised of both closed, director-led thematic workshops and plenary sessions open across workshops and to the general public—will be structured to enable intensive “working group” interactions on specific research themes as well as broader interactions on topics of mutual interest and concern. Each workshop will have two directors with different institutional affiliations, preferably representing different disciplines.

Joint proposals are invited from faculty members at accredited universities and colleges in any world region who are interested in co-organizing and co-directing a thematic workshop that addresses one of the following broadly conceived workshop themes (click here to see full description of workshop themes):

  1. Sites of InterAsian Interaction
  2. Territorial Sovereignties and Historical Identities
  3. Transregional Religious Networks
  4. Environmental Humanities in Asia
  5. Rethinking Conceptual Frameworks for the Rise of Asian Cities
  6. Infrastructures and Networks

Critical tourism studies – Asia-Pacific

Call for papers: Recentering Critical Tourism Studies, 4-6/03/2018, Yogyakarta, Indonesia

Final deadline for abstract and panel submission : 15/10/2017

The Asia Pacific is one of the fastest growing regions in the world for both international and domestic tourism. The growth of this region has radically altered the global tourism landscape and contributed to new modes of tourism practice, while engendering a decentering of Anglo-Western centrism in tourism theory. In this inaugural conference of the Critical Tourism Studies Asia Pacific network (CTS-AP), we seek to draw attention to the multiple modalities and recenterings of critical tourism scholarship.

The aim of this conference is to stimulate new conversations that examine issues across tourism theory, policy and practice. By highlighting perspectives in and beyond the region, we address how the “center” of tourism scholarship is mediated by ongoing shifts in the global political economy, tourism geopolitics and environmental governance.

We seek to re-frame the centers and peripheries of critical tourism studies through focused and critical analyses of tourism ideologies, practices, and policies, bringing a particular interest to how they circulate transnationally, regionally and locally through complex and manifold interconnections within the Asia-Pacific region and beyond.

We welcome papers and presentations from scholars and practitioners that employ a critical approach to tourism studies. We anticipate the participation of practitioners, travel writers and tourism-focused scholars from across a range of disciplines such as anthropology, geography, sociology, political science, and cultural, environmental, women’s, area, and tourism studies.

Proposals may be submitted via the ACLA portal by September 21, 2017, 9AM EST. Contact Catherine H. Nguyen (catheringuyen@ucla.edu) and Hao Jun Tam haot@sas.upenn.edu for any questions.

Call for papers : Sacred Sites/Sacred Stories: Global Perspectives

Call for papers : Sacred Sites/Sacred Stories: Global Perspectives, 5-7 April 2018, ANU College of Asia & the Pacific, The Australian National University, Canberra, ACT, Australia

Abstract Deadline: 15 October 2017

The study of sacred sites is a prominent feature in a number of disciplines. Sacred sites and stories and pilgrimage are the theme of the conference. Topics of enquiry range from the role of sacred sites in religious traditions, through to how sacred sites form part of the development of modern tourist industries, the role of sacred sites in international relations and the ways in which sacred sites can be the focus for disputes. At a time when many sacred sites and their stories face challenges due to economic development, environmental change and the impact of mass pilgrimage and tourism the conference offers an opportunity for wide-ranging discussions of the past, present and future of sacred sites and stories and their significance in the world today.

The conference will have the following panels:

•    Pilgrimage and Tourism
•    Historical Perspectives
•    Visual Arts and Architecture
•    Indigenous Traditions
•    Competition and Contestation

We welcome proposals for paper presentations that address the theme of one of these panels. Individual papers that are relevant to the main theme but are not aligned with any of the proposed panel streams will also be considered for presentation.

Panel Proposals : while proposals for individual papers are welcome, applicants are also encouraged to collaborate with peers to propose panels of 3-4 papers that converge on a particular theme.

In view of the major role that Australia and the Asia Pacific region plays in national and international discussions about sacred sites and sacred stories we particularly welcome panels on Asian, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and Pacific perspectives on sacred sites. We also welcome papers covering a range of time frames, from pre-history to the contemporary era, and from all traditions and locations.

Call for papers : REORIENTING MYANMAR STUDIES IN MYANMAR

Call for papers : Reorienting Myanmar Studies in Myanmar, 5-6 february 2018, Departement of Historical Research and National Library, Yangon

Myanmar studies among international scholars and researchers over the recent decades have been based in universities and institutions outside of Myanmar. Understanding of Myanmar Studies primarily dwelled on social science in Myanmar. However, the scope of Myanmar Studies has been becoming widespread and developing into a variety of focuses in recent years. Today, diversity of views and ideas has been emerging due to the impact of democratization process followed by socio-economic and political changes in Myanmar. Thus, Myanmar Studies has become an umbrella term that can cover every disciplinary, interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research focusing on Myanmar. With recent democratic and political liberalizations, it is the right time for the Republic of the Union of Myanmar to organize international conferences on Myanmar studies.

“Reorienting Myanmar Studies in Myanmar” is a conference which is expected to serve as a platform that encourages a new direction in local and foreign scholarships on Myanmar. Therefore, we may find new perspectives discussing newly-emerged researches, both local and foreign, on a variety of disciplines.
So, the conference welcomes research papers in any discipline under the category of Myanmar Studies.

Submission Guidelines
Please submit your Title, Abstract, and short Biography in MS Word Format as an attachment to an email addressed to info.dhrconference@gmail.com not later than 15 September 2017.

CALL FOR workshop PAPERS: Populism in Asia: Contours, Causes, Consequences

Call for workshop papers : Populism in Asia: Contours, Causes, Consequences, 15-16 November 2017, Monash University Malaysia

During the last few years, populism has gained widespread attention in the Western world. Populist tendencies in Asia, however, have been largely ignored. Apart from the volume by Mizuno/Pasuk (2009), the phenomenon has slipped academic attention so far. Yet in recent years, the success of a new « Islamic populism » in Indonesia and Turkey, the rise of populist-authoritarian strongmen such as Duterte in the Philippines and Prabowo in Indonesia illustrate the salience of the phenomenon in Asia. A two-day-workshop organized by Monash Malaysia’s School of Arts and Social Science and the German Institute of Global and Area Studies in Hamburg (GIGA) is exploring the issue of populist mobilization in Asia, its causes and consequences.

Altough the concept itself is fuzzy, recent scholarship has made some significant contributions to the understanding of populism. We follow a narrow definition of the concept and understand it as a mobilization strategy, which uses ideas that divide society into two homogenous and antagonistic camps : the « pure people » and the « corrupt elite » (Mudde 2004 ; Müller 2016). We can distinguish between classical, right-wing (ethno-nationalist), neoliberal and left-wing populism. Often, populism as a « thin ideology » is combined with elements of nationalism or socialism. The causes and effects of the rise of populist movements and parties are subject to intense debate : structuralist explanation such as economic insecurity, delayed modernization or uneven globalization stand next to culturalist assumptions, e. g. the cultural backlash thesis that is the « retro reaction by once-predominant sectors of the population to progressive value change (Inglehart/Norris  2016).

The workshop explores the following questions :

  1. How can we caracterize Asia’s emerging populism ?
  2. What are the root causes for the rise (or failure) of populists leaders/movements/parties ?
  3. How do populists mobilize their followers ?
  4. What are the effects of the rise of populists on foreign policy and domestic politics ?
