East Asian Languages and Cultures Graduate Student Symposium

USC graduate student symposiumThe Depart­ment of East Asian Lan­guages and Cul­tures and Grad­u­ates Study­ing East Asia at the Uni­ver­si­ty of South­ern Cal­i­for­nia invite grad­u­ate stu­dents con­duct­ing research in all dis­ci­plines relat­ed to East Asia to sub­mit abstracts for their 2018 grad­u­ate stu­dent sym­po­sium, “Resis­tance Reimag­ined.”

This con­fer­ence, on Sep­tem­ber 29, 2018, aims to inves­ti­gate and for­mu­late new the­o­riza­tions of resis­tance as well as rethink how com­mu­ni­ties and indi­vid­u­als con­struct nar­ra­tives to reimag­ine social and polit­i­cal changes in the con­text of East Asia.

The top­ic can be inter­pret­ed wide­ly in rela­tion to var­i­ous fields, includ­ing but not lim­it­ed to cin­e­ma and media stud­ies, gen­der stud­ies, his­to­ry, lin­guis­tics, lit­er­a­ture, reli­gion, and visu­al stud­ies.

Sub­mis­sions are wel­come from grad­u­ate stu­dents in all dis­ci­plines. Papers should be relat­ed to East Asia, includ­ing East Asian inter­ac­tions with the wider world.

Appli­cants should sub­mit an abstract (max­i­mum 250 words) and a short biog­ra­phy (max­max­i­mum 150 words) to uscgsea@gmail.com by May 1, 2018 (5:00 p.m. PST).
