Graduate students are invited to submit papers for the Seventeenth Annual Graduate Student Conference on East Asia. This two-day conference provides a forum for students from institutions around the world to meet and share ideas with their peers. Participants gain valuable experience in presenting their work for discussion with other graduate students and some Columbia faculty.
We welcome applications from graduate students engaged in research on all fields in East Asian Studies, including history, literature, political science, art history, religion, sociology, and anthropology.
Proposals for both organized panels and individual papers are welcome.
Participants can take part in the conference as presenters and/or discussants.
Presenters deliver 15-minute (maximum) talks that summarize research in progress. We strongly encourage presenters to form their own thematically linked 3-person panels.
Discussants introduce the panelists and facilitate the 20-minute discussion session following the presentations.
