International conference 2-3 May 2012
Organized by Asian Dynamics Initiative, University of Copenhagen

Call for Papers

We invite scholars to reflect, describe and even 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 via Marie Yoshida marie.yoshida@nias.ku.dk

The committee will notify abstract submitters of acceptance by email no later than 1 February 2012.

Deadline for submission of full papers is 4 April 2012.

We suggest the following sub-themes, although we welcome other topics relevant to the overall Asia-Europe theme as well:

Shifting Centres of Economic Gravity

Environmental Challenges

Urban Imaginaries and Power

Changing Security Dynamics

Historical Difference

Cultural Affects 

Competition for Resources
