The CU Boulder Asian Studies Graduate Association (CUBASGA) invites submissions for its annual graduate student conference, to be held fully in-person on the CU Boulder campus on February 4 & 5, 2023

Current graduate students from across the US and around the world are encouraged to submit proposals on any aspect of Asian culture. We invite a broad range of research interests on the region that may include, but are not limited to, the following fields: Anthropology, Art and Art History, Literatures, Economics, Ethnic Studies, Ethnomusicology, Film Studies, Geography, History, Linguistics, Philosophy, Political Science, Religion, Sociology, Theatre and Dance, Urban and Regional Planning, and Women’s Studies.

The conference will include keynote addresses from two prominent scholars in Chinese and Japanese studies, Prof. Tina Lu (Colonel John Trumbull Professor of East Asian Languages and Literatures, Yale University) and Prof. Sabine Frühstück (Koichi Takashima Chair in Japanese Cultural Studies, University of California, Santa Barbara). Keynote speakers and University of Colorado faculty will be on hand to provide feedback to presenters throughout the conference. Above all, the conference is a forum through which graduate students, researchers, and faculty are able to engage in dialogues of critical importance to the development of our respective fields, providing crucial opportunities for expanding the horizons of academic perspectives as well as the breadth of academic and professional networks.

To apply, please submit a 300-word conference paper proposal and a CV to cubasga@colorado.edu by December 1, 2022. Successful applicants will be notified of acceptance by the end of 2022. For inquiries, please email CUBASGA student administrators at cubasga@colorado.edu.

We look forward to your submissions!

Sincerely,

CU Boulder Asian Studies Graduate Association (CUBASGA) student administrators
