2020 ASCJ Call for Papers

The Executive Committee of the Asian Studies Conference Japan (ASCJ)
invites proposals for panels, roundtables, and individual papers to be
presented at the Twenty-third Asian Studies Conference Japan. The
conference will be held on July 4th and 5th at Sophia University in Tokyo.
All presentations are to be delivered in English.

Proposals may be submitted online from September 15, 2019. *The deadline
for proposals is October 15*. *Please note that applicants may submit in
total only one paper proposal for the conference. *Results will be
announced by late December.

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 proposals that will attract a broad
range of scholarly interest by focusing on more than one region or by
drawing on more than one discipline. 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 it 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 2020. The deadline for submission
of the completed paper is June 15, 2020 (tentative). 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.

Christopher Bondy
ASCJ President
