18th Annual Harvard HEAS Conference

The Harvard East Asia Society (HEAS) invites currently enrolled graduate students working across all disciplines to submit papers for its annual conference. This three-day conference provides an interdisciplinary forum for scholars from institutions around the world to share ideas and research with their peers. Participants gain invaluable experience presenting their work for discussion with other graduate students and Harvard faculty.

This year’s conference is titled “Asia in Transition” and will be held on February 20th, 21st, and 22nd, 2015.

The HEAS Conference Board invites papers that examine Asia as a region in flux. We seek to highlight the ever-changing nature of spaces in Asia, whether historical or contemporary. What provides the impetus for change and what are its results? Conversely, why do transitions not occur? Preference will be given to papers which engage with the conference theme.

Interested parties can apply via the conference website: http://projects.iq.harvard.edu/heasconference/submissions. The application entails entering basic personal information, a 100-word bio, and 300-word abstract. Applications are due on Sunday, November 30th, 2014.
