Third Annual Critical Asian Humanities Workshop
Duke University will host a select graduate student conference in conjunction with its third annual Critical Asian Humanities workshop, which will run from March 31 to April 1, 2017. Integrating approaches and methodologies from cultural studies, critical theory, and area studies, we identify Critical Asian Humanities as an interdisciplinary field that emphasizes humanistic inquiry while critically interrogating many of the assumptions on which the humanities have traditionally relied.
