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 firstname.lastname@example.org by May 1, 2018 (5:00 p.m. PST).
