CFP - Rising Asia, Anxious Europe

The Asian Dynamics Initiative (ADI) is pleased to annonce the international conference Rising Asia -Anxious Europe to be held at the University of Copenhagen on 2-3 May 2012.

The conference will take place over two days featuring distinguished keynote speakers and paper presentations from an inter-disciplinary group of scholars, focusing on Europe's ‘new' relationship with Asia or the changes in Europe and Asia against the backdrop of such changing relationships.

Rising Asia - Anxious Europe is the fourth in a series of annual conferences initiated by ADI in 2008. ADI is a cross-faculty and interdisciplinary effort to meet the current challenges and demands for better knowledge of and deeper insights into Asian matters. 

Call for Papers

We invite scholars to reflect, describe and speculate on (from their own fields of specialization and vantage points) the current state as well as the future of Europe's ‘new' engagement with Asia. We particularly invite empirical studies, ethnographies and historically grounded accounts of the event - of the rise of Asia - as witnessed in a variety of settings and localities. These include not only different regional experiences, but also transformations experienced at the level of macro policy making to everyday individual choices and patterns.

Abstracts (no more than 250 words) should be submitted by 15 January 2012 to the organizing committee (by email to Marie Yoshida marie.yoshida@nias.ku.dk

The committee will notify abstract submitters of acceptance by email no later than 27 January 2012.
