Event information


Translating asia: Past, present and future
October 22-24, 2010
California State University, Northridge

Deadline: May 10, 2010

Call for papers

To translate can mean to render into another language, to interpret, and to transform. Each of these meanings is central to both the subject matter and the methodology of Asian studies. For this conference we encourage papers that explore the role of translation in studying Asia past and present.

We invite proposals for papers and panels on all aspects of Asian Studies for WCAAS 2010, October 22-24, at California State University, Northridge.

While the conference is primarily for faculty members, graduate students are also welcome to submit papers, as are those who venture outside traditional disciplines.
