The University of Colorado Boulder Asian Studies Graduate Association (CUBASGA) Conference provides a forum for graduate students to present their research from a variety of disciplines in the Humanities that pertains to East Asian studies. The CUBASGA Conference will take place in Spring 2018 on Friday, February 23rd to Saturday, February 24th, 2018.  

The conference will include keynote addresses from Professor Michael Nylan from the University of California, Berkeley, and Professor David Atherton from Harvard University. Keynote speakers and University of Colorado faculty will also be on hand to provide feedback to presenters throughout the conference. In addition to exploring topics in Asian Studies, our conferences have always focused on professional development for graduate students by providing them the opportunity to improve their presentation skills and develop their academic networks.  

In addition to lunch and refreshments on both days, we will provide dinner on Friday night for student presenters and faculty members. For each paper, a fifteen-to-twenty-minute presentation will be expected. After each presentation, a few minutes will be given for comments and questions. Applicants should submit an abstract no longer than 300 words and a résumé or curriculum vitae to by November 25th, 2017. Please send all inquiries to the aforementioned email address.
