The 22nd New Zealand Asian Studies Society (NZASIA) International Conference 2017

The NZASIA 2017 Conference is hosted by the University of Otago from Monday, 27 to Wednesday, 29 November, 2017

In line with NZASIA's key objectives, our biennial conference is multidisciplinary and aims at bringing together scholars working in the broader, open, and contested site of Asian studies. Participants are invited to submit panel or paper proposals presenting original research on any Asian-related topic. We can accept only one paper submission per person.
We particularly seek contributions from emerging scholars and postgraduate students and a number of events are specifically targeted to support the new generation of researchers. Paper presentations will be allocated 30 minutes (20 minutes presentation and 10 minutes discussion). Shorter papers with more time for discussion are welcome.
Panels will normally comprise three paper presentations, but alternative structures (e.g, shorter presentations and more panelists or a combination of presenters and discussant) are also welcomed.
Submission of Abstracts
Paper abstracts, single spaced and no longer than 200 words, must be submitted electronically as Microsoft Word email attachments before 30 June 2017 to: nzasia2017@otago.ac.nz.
