Call for Papers: Sixth Annual Critical Asian Humanities Workshop (deadline, January 1, 2020)
April 10-11, 2020
Duke University will host its sixth annual Critical Asian Humanities workshop on April 10-11, 2020. 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.
The 2020 Workshop’s keynote speakers will be:
Michael Berry (UCL)
Shuang Shen (Penn State)
Keith Vincent (Boston University)
and with concluding remarks by
Leo Ching (Duke)
The workshop will also feature papers by 6 graduate students, selected by a panel of Duke faculty and graduate students. Duke will cover the domestic travel and 3 days of room/board for the students who are invited to speak.
Although the workshop does not have a formal theme, preference will be given to graduate student papers that complement the keynote speakers’ focus on work that foregrounds questions of borders. Students working on Asia (including global Asia) in any discipline in the humanities or interpretive social sciences are welcome to apply.
