Dear list members,
(apologies for cross-posting)

Please note that due to several requests for an extension of the submission
deadline, we are now accepting abstracts for the conference below *until
September 12*.

*Spirituality, Healthcare And Social Movements In East Asia: A
Transnational Perspective* (1st EANASE conference)

*Dates*: *6, 13, 20, and 27 November 2021 (on Zoom, in English)*
*Send proposals to*: *eanase.conf.2021 at gmail.com
<eanase.conf.2021 at gmail.com>*

The East Asian cultural sphere has figured prominently in recent
collections of research on new religious movements (e.g. Pokorny and Winter
2018, Clart, Ownby and Wang 2020), Theosophy (e.g. Rudbog and Sand 2020,
Krämer and Strube 2020), and global therapeutic cultures (e.g. Nehring et
al. 2020, Harrington 2008), while it continues to attract the attention of
scholars working on civil society (e.g. Read and Pekkanen 2009) and
self-help movements (e.g. Cliff et al. 2017, Palmer 2007). But, although we
are often aware of the complex entanglements between these seemingly
separate areas of interest, we seldom have the opportunity to discuss such
entanglements in and beyond East Asia. At the same time, in the last twenty
years, significant scholarship has been published in East Asia on this
topic (recent books include Yoshinaga et al. 2019, Ichiyanagi 2020, Imura
and Hamano 2021 in Japan, Zheng 2018, Zhang 2020 in China, and Cheon
Myeong-soo 2009, Park Seung-gil et al. 2019 in South Korea).
This conference aims to offer such a chance by inviting academic
contributions to reflect on the intertwined relationship between
spirituality, healthcare, and social movements in East Asia from a
trans-national/local/cultural perspective. As a time of unprecedented
changes and accelerated global interactions, our focus lies on the period
between the nineteenth to the twentieth-first centuries.
