Call for Papers: Graduate Student Conference in Asian Studies, UC Boulder

The CU Boulder Asian Studies Graduate Association (CUBASGA) invites submissions for its annual graduate conference, which will be held at the University of Colorado, Boulder on February 15–16, 2019. All researchers in the humanities are encouraged to apply, so long as their research is related to Asian literatures and/or cultures.

Our keynote speakers for this year will be Professor Christopher Rea (University of British Columbia) and Professor Tomiko Yoda (Harvard). Keynote speakers and University of Colorado faculty will also be on hand to provide feedback to presenters throughout the conference. In addition to highlighting research in Asian Studies, our conference focuses on professional development for graduate students by providing them opportunities to improve their presentation skills and develop their academic networks.

Applicants should submit an abstract (no longer than 300 words) and a résumé or curriculum vitae to by November 23, 2018. Please send all inquiries to the aforementioned email address. You are also welcome to visit our website at

In addition to lunch and refreshments on both days, we will provide dinner Friday night for student presenters and faculty members. For each paper, a 15–20 minute presentation will be expected. After each presentation, a few minutes will be allowed for comments and questions.

We look forward to your submissions!
