Call for Papers: ASCJ 2018

The Executive Committee of the Asian Studies Conference Japan (ASCJ) invites
proposals for panels, roundtables, and individual papers to be presented at
the Twenty-second Asian Studies Conference Japan. The conference will be
held International Christian University (ICU) in Tokyo on Saturday and
Sunday, June 30-July 1, 2018. All presentations are to be delivered in

The ASCJ is also pleased to announce that on September 1, 2017 we renewed
our main website. We now provide online proposal submission forms, and
information about our organization.

Our new address is:


Proposals may be submitted online beginning on September 15, 2017.

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

The forms are available at:

Panels are proposed by individual 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.

Papers may be co-authored. However, only the names of registered
participants will appear on the program.

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 embed
students alongside more seasoned 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 2018. The deadline for submission
of the completed paper is June 15, 2018. The winner will be announced at
the time of the keynote lecture.

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.
