Sinica (AS) in Taipei, Taiwan, and the Association for Asian Studies
(AAS) are jointly organizing the 2015 2nd AAS ‐ in ‐ Asia conference:
“Asia in Motion: Ideas, Institutions, Identities.” The three “I”s
herein represent the challenges that Asia is facing and the possible
contributions it could make in the rapid changes of globalization. This
conference is designed to attract proposals of panels and roundtables
of broad and diverse interests. We welcome scholars of humanities and
social sciences, as well as specialists from professional fields such
as law, policy making and journalism, to join us in Academia Sinica
from June 22 ‐ 24, 2015.
in the inaugural AAS ‐ in ‐ Asia conference in Singapore, we seek
proposals dealing with the four regions covered by AAS (China nd Inner
Asia, Northeast Asia, South Asia, and Southeast Asia) and on subjects
from a wide range of scholarly disciplines and professional fields. We
will entertain proposals for both single country and multi ‐ country
studies. Panels may also cover topics historically covered by the AAS
for its annual meetings. We particularly encourage panels formed with a
mix of scholars and reflective practitioners from Asia, USA, and other
parts of the world.
2015 AAS ‐ in ‐ Asia conference will be held at Academia Sinica,
Taipei,Taiwan. Academia Sinica, the most preeminent academic
institution in Taiwan, was founded in 1928 and moved to Taiwan after
1949. It is now an institution for advanced research with a worldwide
reputation, aiming for opening up new areas of intellectual endeavor
and taking a leadership role in launching new initiatives in applied
areas to meet a broad spectrum of social needs in both Taiwan and Asia.
It is hoped that organizing the 2nd AAS ‐ in ‐ Asia conference in
conjunction with AAS will engage the academic and research community of
humanities and social sciences in the modern academic vision and
promote international collaboration and scholarly exchange.
