The tenth AAS Dissertation Workshop, â€œBorders, Migration, and Transnational Flows: Asia in Motion,â€ will be held in conjunction with the AAS/ICAS joint conference in Honolulu March 28 – 31, 2011. The workshop will be organized and led by David Szanton and will follow the model used in previous workshops.
To be scheduled for the days immediately preceding the conference, the workshop will cover two and one-half days of intense discussion beginning the evening of Monday, March 28, and running through the afternoon of Thursday, March 31.
The workshop is intended to bring together doctoral students in the humanities and social sciences who are developing dissertation proposals or are in early phases of research or dissertation writing. It will be limited to twelve students, ideally from a broad array of disciplines and working on a wide variety of materials in a variety of time periods, and in various regions of Asia. It also will include a small multi-disciplinary and multi-area faculty with similar concerns.
Applications must reach the AAS office by December 10, 2010. For a full description of the workshop and application procedures, see the announcement on the AAS Web Site: http://www.asian-studies.org/News/dissertation-workshop.htm.
