InnovASIA: New Orientations in Asian Studies
The Trans-Asia Graduate Student Association is pleased to announce the Seventh Annual Trans-Asia Graduate Student Conference at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, encompassing Asia-related research across a wide range of fields. Participants will have a valuable opportunity to share work with and receive feedback from peers and senior researchers as well as to gain insight into recent developments in Asia-related research across various disciplines. This year’s conference aims to provide broader insight into Asian studies by focusing on innovations in methodology as well as the studies of innovations in Asia. The theme encompasses the concept of “innovation” in the broadest sense, be it about bringing new perspectives to existing topics of study, introducing new subjects, or studying historical innovations in Asia, material or immaterial, global or local. Taking the participants’ specific fields of study as a starting point, we want to look for various innovative perspectives and inspiration on Asian studies. Potential fields may include, but are not limited to: literature, linguistics, history, art history, geography, philosophy, economics, anthropology, sociology, education and any other related humanities and social science fields.
