Chinese Studies Association of Australia – 13th Biennial Conference
“探尋之旅” – Journeys
July 10-11, 2013
University of Tasmania
Call for Papers (deadline April 12 2013)
The Chinese Studies Association of Australia is the peak body in Australia for Chinese Studies. Its biennial conference is the opportunity for scholars to share their expertise and current research among peers at the highest level in an atmosphere that is both convivial and galvanizing of new ideas and knowledge about China.
The CSAA is pleased to invite colleagues to submit paper proposals for the biennial CSAA 2013 conference in Hobart, Tasmania.
The theme of the conference is 探尋之旅, which we translate simply as “Journeys”. The phrase intends to capture conceptual links between Tasmania as a place for scholars to come and evocative ways of thinking about China. We invite participants to reflect upon journeys across territory and through time that have been undertaken by people, objects, ideas and words in the Chinese world, and the transformation that those things have undergone.
As in previous meetings of the CSAA, we encourage contributions from all disciplines and points of view, either as individual papers or in coherent panels. We welcome innovative concepts for panels, including themes and texts presented in dialogue with each other or contrasting readings of common material by panel members.
The conference will be held at the Old Woolstore Hotel conference venue in downtown Hobart, providing both affordable accommodation and professional conference facilities.
In addition, the conference will include a special event at MONA – the Museum of Old and New Art.
Information about the conference, including submissions, is available at the conference website.
