in the West and their manifestations during the last 150 years, whereas the other half focused upon the characteristics of local racial constructions and indigenous racism in modern East Asia, with particular attention to the manifestations of racial thought and racism as the result of the ethnic encounter during Japanese colonialism.

CFP, Paradoxes of Domesticity: Christian Missionaries and Women in Asia and the Pacific

9-10 August, 2012
Australian National University

We are pleased to invite proposals to our conference, “Paradoxes of Domesticity: Christian Missionaries and Women in Asia and the Pacific,” to be held on August 9-10, 2012 at Australian National University.  This is an interdisciplinary, inter-regional conference that focuses on the encounters between Christian missionaries and women in Asia and the Pacific with the aim of understanding the “paradoxes of domesticity” that emerged.

 Research in women’s history has shown that the relationship between the domestic and public spheres has always been permeable and complex in practice despite rigid binaries set in the ideological opposition of the domestic as feminine and the public as masculine. The tensions become even more pronounced in the era of Western imperialism, when the transnational interactions between people, material goods, ideas and images developed at an unprecedented pace.

The engagement of Christian women missionaries with women in Asia and the Pacific was a central feature of these dynamic transnational encounters. Their encounters across the domains of religion, education and family sometimes reinforced and sometimes challenged what constituted the “domestic” in the age of the Western modern. Much research on the topic has privileged the perspectives of Western missionaries. However, relatively little research has been done from the viewpoint of the local people who accepted, resisted or appropriated the new religion and culture.

Call for papers, 12th Annual East Asian Studies Graduate Student Conference

The 12th Annual East Asian Studies Graduate Student Conference, University of Toronto

10 March 2012


We are currently seeking original academic papers on the theme of ?deception?. Establishing as our starting point the distinction between truth and falsehood, we are interested in the question of how and to what purposes that distinction might be intentionally blurred. We welcome contributions that discuss the human, and also non-human, faculty to deceive, as well as the human potential to be deceived. Deception can take the form of propaganda or a glance, an image or an utterance, a presence or an absence, a ploy or a pledge, an action or a silence. The question of deception invites a multitude of discussions: political, linguistic, artistic, cultural, historical, anthropological, philosophical, psychological, and many more besides. Thus we welcome papers from any and all disciplines willing and able to engage academically in the issues, intricacies, and illuminations of the topic of deception in an East Asian context, from the ways deception is defined and figured in East Asian societies and cultures, to the very workings of deception in the figuring and definition of East Asia.


For those interested, we request that you provide an abstract (300 words maximum) as well as your personal and contact information by December 15, 2011. Submissions from both individuals and panels of three (panelists should send individual abstracts and a panel abstract) are encouraged.


Submitted papers are also eligible for consideration for the East Asia Forum, a journal edited and published by graduate students in the Department of East Asian Studies at the University of Toronto. Please indicate whether you wish to have your completed paper considered for publication.


Selected participants will be asked to submit completed papers by February 15, 2012. Those who wish their papers to be considered for publication should submit a publication-ready copy (about 4000 words) by March 31, 2012. During the conference, participants will be given 20 minutes to present their work; actual presentation papers should be about 1500-2500 words long.


Call for Papers, “Spaces of Possibility”

Center for Korean Studies, University of Washington-Seattle

Proposals Due December 1st, 2011


The Center for Korean Studies in collaboration with the Japan Studies Program at the University of Washington invites papers for “Spaces of Possibility,” a conference on interactions and parallel developments of recent Japan and Korea to be held at the University of Washington in September 2012. We are seeking a select number of papers that open new discursive space in writing and thinking about individual, local and national relationships in and between Korea, Japan, and the rest of the world.


We are interested in papers on Korea or Japan that among other things explore contemporary shifts in the ways in which time and space are produced, lived and understood. Suggested topics include: Japan and Korea elsewhere; alternative spaces, displacement or urban exit; visualizations of culture including Japan, Okinawa, North and South Korea; colonial nostalgia in Japan and Korea; and projects and processes potentially ranging from divination to development.


Papers should take both Japan and Korea into account, and we encourage participants with single-country expertise to venture into new areas and explore comparisons or articulations, with the expectation that the cooperative expertise of the conference participants as a whole can help foster intellectual growth. Collaborative projects will be welcome, as will experimental and preliminary papers.

Korea 2012 – Politics, Economy and Society

The editors of Korea – Politics, Economy and Society, published annually since 2007 by Brill (Leiden and Boston), are now calling for papers for the 2012 edition of the yearbook. The Korea: Politics, Economy and Society series is the source for up-to-date concise information on what is happening on the Korean peninsula.

The editors are particularly interested in papers dealing with North Korea and inter-Korean affairs and papers analysing Korean affairs from a comparative perspective. Papers on other topics falling within the scope of Korea – Politics, Economy and Society are also very welcome. Interested scholars and graduate students should send proposals of no less than 500 words to Patrick Koellner ( by 31 October 2011. The editors will decide in November which proposals for papers should be developed into manuscripts (10,000 words maximum) to be submitted by 28 February 2012.

Cfp, Comparative Perspectives: the Politics of Public Space in Korea

Date: November 11-12, 2011

Location: University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA.

One distinctive feature of postwar South Korean society has been its citizens’ propensity for ‘taking to the streets’ to appropriate, contest or offer alternative narratives of the nation. From individuals tagging graffiti to mass candlelight vigils, from popular remembrances of the Korean War to ritual observances at monuments, the so-called ‘public space’ has been fertile ground for Koreans to present their visions of the past, present, and future.

This conference provides an opportunity to reassess and reconfigure existing frameworks regarding public action (by individuals and groups) by inviting papers that advance our understanding of the role of public space in Korean society and culture.

Social sciences and humanities scholars that are interested in Korea or in Korea in the region are welcome to submit papers situated in contemporary or historical time periods. Interested participants are encouraged to draw from and discuss recent innovations in their respective fields with respect to time, space and identity formation in public spaces.

We encourage submissions that address at least one of the following themes:

· ‘public’ and ‘private’

· memorialization and ritual

· identity and temporality

· security and stability

· socio-structural transformation

· institutional actors
