2013 ASPAC Conference Call for Paper and Panel Proposals
The annual conference of Asian Studies on the Pacific Coast (ASPAC) in 2013 will be held in the beautiful city of Monterey on California’s Central Coast, hosted by the Monterey Institute of International Studies, a Graduate School of Middlebury College, on June 7-9, 2013. The conference organizing committee welcomes the participation of university/college teachers and researchers, graduate and undergraduate students, and independent scholars interested in any aspect of Asia, defined to include Northeast Asia, Southeast Asia, South Asia, Central Asia, and Southwest Asia. ASPAC encourages inter/multidisciplinary discourse among Asia-focused scholars and students and invites those trained in Political Science, Economics, History, Sociology, Anthropology, Linguistics, Language Teaching, Law, Business Administration, Psychology, and other disciplines to participate in its annual conferences.
This year’s conference theme is “Asia: Looking Back, Moving Forward.” Asian societies have changed and continue to change in myriad ways, while memories of the past also continue to inform understandings about them. Goods, services, capital, information, and people have moved and continue to move both within Asia and beyond. Proposals for individual or panel presentations on these temporal and spatial aspects of Asian societies are encouraged, although proposals on any other aspect of Asia will be also considered. The theme is designed to encourage discussion of any aspect of Asian experience and any approach to understanding Asian societies that evokes or involves a sense of time or movement. Welcome are reflections on what has already transpired in the political, economic, and social-cultural life of an Asian people or peoples, on what is desirable, possible, or probable in the future or in a geographic space where it has not yet happened, on how a sense of time and spatial movement is conveyed in an Asian language or languages and how it has changed or may be changing, on social-cultural practices that have or are moving into new territories and communities within Asia and without, and on sources of individual and community identities found in the history or in their future aspirations and prospects of Asian societies, etc.
DEADLINE: First deadline – April 7, 2013; final deadline (see below) – May 7, 2013. Early submissions are encouraged as approval of a proposal allows the author to register for the conference and also secure a hotel room at a discounted rate. In exceptional cases, submissions after the May 7 deadline may be reviewed.
SELECTION PROCEDURE: A faculty committee at the Monterey Institute of International Studies, in consultation with the ASPAC Board, will review and accept or reject proposals as soon after submission as possible. Submissions by the first deadline will be given priority. Additional submissions will be reviewed as panel space allows until May 7.

Call for Papers: Fifth Annual Cultural Studies Graduate Student Conference and Workshop at the Univeristy of New Mexico, Albuquerque
April 12-13, 2013
Pleasure, Pain & Perversion: Embodied Violence & Eroticism in Cultural Representations
Key note lecture to be delivered by: Dr. Liz Constable, UC Davis
The body serves as an important point of intersection, a site where ideology, material cultural practice, and narrative come together to form an understanding of the self. “Embodied Violence & Eroticism” asks us to explore this site in the various ways the body acts and is acted upon, demanding that we go beyond mere linear abstractions of ideology and look at how these ideologies converge upon the individual. Power relations use eroticism and violence as discourse to highlight the dichotomies between masculine and feminine, public and private spheres, colonizer and colonized, the body’s function and representation, and other binary relations. The complexity of erotic discourses lies in the manifold ways in which they encapsulate and transport desires, thereby blurring the boundaries between the acknowledgement of the self and the acknowledgement of the self’s desire.
Possible session topics include but are not limited to:
- Pornography, Power, and the Performance of the Erotic
- Performance and the Embodiment of Culture
- Biopolitics and Sexuality
- The Psychosomatic
- The (Trans)gendered Body
- Violation and Forgiveness: Living Through Trauma
- Post-colonialism, the Racialized Body, and Psychic Colonization
- Wars and Embodied Borders
- Sartorial Rhetoric and Semiotics
- The Cinematic/Virtual Body
- Taboo: Sex, Identity, Nudity and Erotic Subjectivity
- Psychoanalysis and Perversions
- Semiotics of Desire
- Erotic Justice
- The Erotic in Feminism/The Erotic in Feminine vis-à-vis Masculine Discourse
- Morality, Lust, and the Semiotics of Desire
- Fetishism and Popular Culture
Conference Structure: This conference/workshop will be comprised of the keynote address and panels on Friday, followed by additional panels on Saturday. Central to the conference is a graduate seminar style workshop on Saturday. This workshop is led by the keynote speaker and designed to explore the issues presented and discussed in more detail and depth. Presenters are requested to arrange their travel so that they can participate in the entire event, including the workshop. There will also be a closing reception Saturday evening, which is open to all participants and audience members.
Please send a 500 word abstract along with a brief biographical statement, in a separate document, to email@example.com by Thursday, February 14. Selected participants will be notified by Monday, February 25.

Taiwan in Theory
The North American Taiwan Studies Association (NATSA) invites scholars, particularly young scholars, to submit proposals for our upcoming annual conference on June 21-22, at the University of California, Santa Barbarawith the co-assistance of the Center for Taiwan Studies at UCSB and of the Institute of Taiwan History at Academia Sinica. Following the calls of multiple scholars from our 2012 conference, we invite submitters to consider how Taiwan’s
situation—its own by itself or in relation to or in comparison with others, perhaps as a gateway, liminal space, node, or even method—makes contributions that scholars who pursue answers to parallel questions in other areas would profit from hearing. We encourage students of Taiwan to return to and reflect on their research, to its basis in Taiwan's experience, to discover insight into how these may, whether originally the main focus of research, a footnote in it, or a previously unfinished thought, contribute in novel ways to larger debates.
As a larger goal for the conference, NATSA hopes to begin to inspire the work and discussions that will continue to push Taiwan and Taiwan Studies towards critical, valuable engagement with the most pressing questions of the moment and of the future. NATSA 2013 challenges scholars to begin research that will place Taiwan (along with its
people, their productions, anxieties, and challenges) at the forefront of theory. By joining this conference and speaking to your own discipline’s debates and discussions, we hope to create a node of exchange for disciplinary knowledge and advance. This will also give presenters the opportunity to place their work and conclusions before a group of other younger and experienced scholars intimately engaged with parallel issues, data, and events from quite different
