The Australian National University Korea Institute invites proposals for the conference, “Latent Histories, Manifest Impacts: Interplay between Korea and Southeast Asia,” to be held February 26–27, 2015, at ANU. This is an interdisciplinary, inter-regional conference that focuses on the history of contact and interaction between Korea and Southeast Asia.
The conference aims to offer in-depth analyses of the history of contact and the increasingly significant ties between Korea and Southeast Asia in a wide range of areas, including historical connections and divergent developments in civil society, politics, status in the global economy, religious encounters, gender dynamics, and the creative industries.
Proposals for panel, roundtable, or visual/performative presentations are invited. Interested scholars and Ph.D. students are encouraged to submit an abstract (250 words) and a one-page curriculum vitae to korea.institute@añu.edu.au by July 15, 2014. Authors will be notified of the status of proposals by August 15. A small amount of funding may be available to support travel for approved proposals. Conference organizers plan to select a set of papers for publication in relevant journals.
