Asian Studies

Joint East Asian Studies Conference 2019

We are pleased to announce that the next triennial Joint East Asian Studies Conference (JEASC) will be held at the University of Edinburgh from 4th to 6th September 2019.

The JEASC is open to members of the British Association for Chinese Studies, the British Association for Japanese Studies, the British Association for Korean Studies and non-members alike. We welcome participants from all countries and backgrounds. 

Panel and individual paper proposals have been submitted across the full range of disciplines within the humanities and social sciences that address topics related to Japan, China, Taiwan, Korea, other parts of the East Asia region, or the region as a whole.

Programme

The call for papers closed in February 2019.

Panels and papers were selected by the organising committee, with preference given to panels with a focus on cross-regional and intra-regional issues. 

A general overview of the conference is now available on the Postgraduate East Asian Studies at Edinburgh blog site, prior to the publication of the full conference programme, and registration is now OPEN.
