The University of Sheffield’s School of East Asian Studies 
(SEAS) invites postgraduate research students of East Asia 
(China, Japan, Korea) to present papers or posters at a one day 
conference to be held in Sheffield on 20 March 2004. The 
conference will be an interdisciplinary meeting and papers or 
posters in all areas of the social sciences and humanities that have 
a focus on East Asia are welcomed. The event is designed to 
provide an informal forum for postgraduate students with interest 
in East Asia to present and discuss work-in-progress and to 
encourage young academics to exchange ideas and cultivate 
interdisciplinary connections beyond their own area of expertise. 
In addition, there will be an opportunity for students to have their 
papers published on the SEAS Electronic Working Papers 
website. We also invite postgraduate students in the early stages 
of their research to present a poster, which will give an 
opportunity to discuss research ideas with other conference 


If you wish to present a paper at the conference please send an 
abstract of no more than 300 words with your contact information 
and institutional affiliation to conference organiser Jo Elfving-
Hwang before 11 January 2004. Papers submitted after that date 
will not be considered. Please send your proposal as a Word email 
attachment to { HYPERLINK "mailto:joanna_hwang at sheffield.ac.uk" }joanna_hwang at sheffield.ac.uk

The aim of this conference is to encourage inter-disciplinarity and 
to this end it is our intention that the panels will be organised 
thematically. However, it would assist us in considering and 
placing your abstracts appropriately if you could provide us with 
an indication of which discipline you regard your research falling 

Those who have sent an abstract will be notified by 30 January, 
2004 of the outcome. If your paper is accepted, you are asked to 
send the full text to the conference secretary by 27 February, 


If you would like to present a poster, please indicate your intention 
to attend by sending an e-mail to the conference organiser Jo 
Elfving-Hwang ({ HYPERLINK "mailto:joanna_hwang at sheffield.ac.uk" }joanna_hwang at sheffield.ac.uk) before 11 
January 2004. 

If you do not wish to present a paper or poster, but would 
like to attend the conference as an observer, please notify 
us by 30 January 2004 as we need to know how many 
people will attend.

The registration fee for the conference is GBP 5.00 payable on 
arrival on 20 March, 2004 and will cover tea/coffee and buffet 
lunch. We regret that we cannot provide travel grants.
