Call for Papers


This year, SWCAS celebrates a return to in-person meetings with a focus on Reconnecting in a (Post)
Pandemic World. The conference is open to individual and panel proposals on all topics related to Asian Studies, but we especially welcome those that connect different disciplines, eras, and contexts in ways that respond to Asia’s global significance in the past and present. The conference will primarily take place in-person but will include a special presentation block for all-virtual panels.

Note: Space for virtual presentations is limited; priority will be given to scholars based outside of the U.S.
