Asia in the World: New Horizons in Asian Anthropology
Time: 17-18 January 2014
Abstract Submission: Due 30 October 2013
The Department of Anthropology and The Chinese University of Hong Kong, invites graduate students in Asia and elsewhere to present their current research at the Postgraduate Student Forum. As Asia continues to become a major actor on the world stage, we hope to explore the vast range of diversity in cultures and languages that are represented by over 4.3 billion people in a land mass that covers almost 1/3 of the earth’s land surface.
Hong Kong is a global city, a major node for trade, investment, and the exchange of ideas. This year, the Postgraduate Student Forum seeks to expand our invitation to graduate students all over the globe, so we are providing a limited amount of scholarships worth up to $2,000 HKD for a select number of abstracts chosen. We hope to encourage communication among local and global young anthropologists and other social scientists to help improve their research and to promote Asian Anthropology internationally.
