Call for Papers: ASCJ 2016

The Executive Committee of the Asian Studies Conference Japan (ASCJ)
invites proposals for panels, roundtables, and individual papers to be
presented at the Twentieth Asian Studies Conference Japan. The conference
will be held at the International Christian University (ICU) in Tokyo on
Saturday and Sunday, July 2-3, 2016. All presentations are to be delivered
in English.

Please visit the ASCJ website for details:

*http://www.meijigakuin.ac.jp/~ <http://www.meijigakuin.ac.jp/~>*ascj*/*

Proposals may be submitted online beginning on September 1, 2015. The
online application forms are available on the ASCJ website:


The deadline for proposals is October 15. Results will be announced by late

Panels are proposed by a group of scholars around a common subject. A
complete panel includes up to five participants, three or four paper
presenters and one or more discussants. Panel proposals should include a
250-word (maximum) abstract from each participant as well as a 250- word
(maximum) statement that explains the session as a whole. Only complete
panels will be considered for acceptance.

Roundtables offer an opportunity for participants to discuss a specific
theme, issue or significant recent publication. A maximum of six active
participants is recommended. While a roundtable proposal will not be as
detailed as a panel proposal, it should explain fully the purpose, themes
or issues, and scope of the session.

Individual papers give scholars an opportunity to participate in the
conference even if they are not able to put together a complete panel.
Since only a limited number of individual papers can be accommodated,
preference will be given to junior scholars. Applicants have a better
chance of acceptance as part of a panel.

The Executive Committee encourages members to submit proposals that, by
focusing on more than one region or by drawing on more than one discipline,
will attract a broad range of scholarly interest. Suggestions for
innovative alternatives to the panels, individual papers and roundtables
described above are also encouraged.

The Executive Committee also strongly encourages graduate student
participation, and will give favorable consideration to panels that include
junior as well as senior scholars.

>From 2014 the ASCJ initiated a Graduate Student Paper Prize. For details on
this competition please see the ASCJ webpage. To be considered for this
prize the student must be enrolled in a degree program at a Japanese
university and present the paper at ASCJ 2016. The deadline for submission
of the completed paper is June 14, 2016. The winner will be announced at
the time of the keynote lecture.

The programs and abstracts of past ASCJ conferences can be found on the
ASCJ webpage: *http://www.meijigakuin.ac.jp/~

Everyone worldwide interested in Asian Studies is invited to participate.
Unfortunately we cannot provide visa support, and can only draft letters of
invitation for participants scheduled to present papers at the ASCJ.
