Call for Papers
The 2011 Conference for the Pacific Asia Network of Canadian Studies (PANCS)
October 6, 2011
Formed in 2006, PANCS brings together the Associations for Canadian Studies in the Asia Pacific region, with the objective of fostering linkages, encouraging new research and developing an Asia Pacific dimension of Canadian Studies. Since 2007, graduate seminars have been held with a wide variety of papers ranging from environment, economics and international relations to literature. Two such seminars were held in Hong Kong and New Delhi in 2007, followed by one in Brisbane in July 2008, one in Osaka, Japan in 2009 and one in Jerusalem in 2010.
For this year’s conference, the theme is “Canadian National Interests in the Asia-Pacific Region,” analyzing issues pertaining to trade, security, education, energy, environment, tourism, politics, law, diplomacy, and culture. The conference organizers welcome proposals addressing the questions of what the region means to Canada, what is at stake, what the opportunities and risks are, how such issues as education, trade, energy, and security matter to Canada in relation to the Asia-Pacific countries. Papers can be country-specific, comparative or regional in focus. Graduate students are especially encouraged to submit their proposals. In departing from the previous format, we will also include a separate session for professors. Anyone interested in presenting a paper relevant to the central theme of the conference is invited to submit a 200-word abstract and a short biography stating their affiliation and research interests. The deadline for submission of abstracts is September 1, 2011, and all enquiries and submission of abstracts should be made to the Conference Secretariat, Professor Alex Mun (firstname.lastname@example.org; 82-10-4646-7855).
Accepted speakers will receive free registration, accommodation and meals. Partial or nearly full support for airfare will be provided according to budget availability.
Selected papers will be published in the Asian Journal of Canadian Studies, a peer-reviewed journal based in Korea.
