Asia in Motion: Horizons in Hope
The 2016 AAS-in-ASIA conference will be held June 24-27 at Doshisha University in Kyoto, Japan.
The 2016 conference program committee has accepted 226 panel sessions after a successful call for proposals dealing with all regions of Asia on subjects covering a wide range of scholarly disciplines and professional fields under the theme “Asia in Motion: Horizons in Hope.” The Conference will include sessions addressing this theme on topics as diverse as political and economic changes, literary and cultural expression, environmental sustainability, media and pop cultural production, food and energy policy, new models for Asian enterprise and business, as well as issues of globalization and urban growth.
“Asia in Motion” was selected as a broad theme for a 3-year series of conferences to be hosted by different institutions across Asia. In the summer of 2014 the inaugural conference was hosted by the Area Research Institute of the National University of Singapore on the sub-theme of “Heritage and Transformation.” The second conference was held at Academia Sinica in Taipei in 2015 on “Ideas, Institutions, and Identity.” The final meeting of this three-year project will take place at Doshisha University and center on the theme “Horizons of Hope.”
