The Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures and Graduates Studying
East Asia at the University of Southern California invite graduate students
conducting research in all disciplines related to East Asia to submit
abstracts for our 2018 symposium, “Resistance Reimagined,” to take place

theorizations of resistance as well as rethink how communities and
individuals construct narratives to reimagine social and political changes
in the context of East Asia. The topic can be interpreted widely in
relation to various fields, including but not limited to cinema and media
studies, gender studies, history, linguistics, literature, religion, and
visual studies.

*Topics can include but are not limited to:*
Methods and practices that initiate or imagine resistance;

Representation of marginal communities or intersectional identities;

Strategies or modes of resistance movements and activism efforts;

Pedagogies of resistance in East Asian studies.

The conference will provide an interdisciplinary forum for graduate
students to exchange ideas and discuss current research on East Asia with
each other and invited faculty panelists. The conference provides a venue
for participants to meet other scholars in their fields conducting similar
research and to forge new professional relationships. Submissions are
welcome from graduate students in all disciplines. Papers should be related
to East Asia, including East Asian interactions with the wider world.

Applicants should submit an abstract (max. 250 words) and a short biography
(max. 150 words) to uscgsea at gmail.com by May 1, 2018 (5:00 p.m. PST).
