2019 EAAA Call for Papers
East Asian Anthropological Association
Annual Meeting 2019
Chonbuk National University, Jeonju, South Korea
28-29 September 2019
The East Asian Anthropological Association is a scholarly association of scholars and students primarily based in East Asia and engaged in anthropological work on Asia. It has had its conferences in China, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan in the past years. In 2019, the annual meeting will take place in Jeonju, South Korea on 28-29 September.
Jeonju is a historic city and a major tourist attraction in the southwestern region of South Korea. The Chonbuk National University, a popular venue to many international conferences including an international anthropological conference, is an ideal place for the annual meeting of EAAA.
We hope that you will propose a panel or an individual paper for this conference. You do not need to be a member of EAAA at present in order to submit a panel or paper. You will become a member automatically by attending this conference.
Please fill out an EAAA panel or individual paper proposal forms by clicking on-line links below. You can submit either a panel proposal, which should have 3-4 participants speaking on a common topic, or an individual paper proposal. Individual paper proposals once accepted will be organized into panels by the organizing committee. Panels that cross-national boundaries rather than only dealing with one society are preferred, but we realize that such panels may not always be possible.
We have recently decided to call for poster presentations in order to encourage the participation of graduate students and scholars who would feel more comfortable making a poster presentation instead of a formal paper presentation. We hope that the poster session will provide an opportunity for informal, interactive presentations and discussions. Due to the time and space constraints, the number of poster presentations will be limited. All poster presenters must register for the conference. Presenters must be present to answer questions during this session. The detail instruction on how to prepare the poster will be notified to the applicants whose proposals are accepted.
If you cannot access the online forms, please complete the attached panel or paper proposal form and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org by 30 April 2019. The program committee will make its decisions by 15 June 2019, and will then send out acceptance notices, conference registration forms, and payment and accommodation reservation instructions to all participants.
For on-line submission:
The conference will be held on 28-29 September at the Chonbuk National University (CBNU), followed on 30 September by a tour of the historic city of Jeonju. Registration will be US$100, and participants will pay for their own lodging. The organizing committee will arrange lodging at a CBNU guesthouse (for which there are limited spaces and the fees for single and double rooms will be determined soon). You may choose to stay at local hotels through online booking sites. A list of recommended local hotels near CBNU will be provided later on. We will provide lunches and the welcome dinner and refreshments at the conference.
We look forward to seeing you in Jeonju in September!
