The 2015 Annual Meeting of the East Asian Anthropological Association (EAAA) will be held jointly with the Annual Meeting of the Taiwan Society for Anthropology and Ethnology (TSAE). The conference theme of the joint meeting is Multiple Landscapes of Anthropology. We invite anthropologists and anthropology students in the East Asian region to participate in the meeting. Please submit your proposed panel or individual paper abstracts (in English) to Dr. Shao-hua LIU at

Abstracts related to the conference theme are particularly welcome. The culturally embedded landscape has always been a research topic for anthropology. This reflection of reality, either lived or imagined, allows anthropologists to approach it by ways of theoretical analysis. Its implications can be so complex as to facilitate the anthropological mapping of a natural, social, ethnic, or gender dimension of fieldwork in its diversity. More significantly, such multiple implications allow anthropologists to engage in cross-disciplinary endeavors such as geography, psychology, environment studies, and science and technology studies. We hope the joint meeting of the EAAA and TSAE will highlight the multiple implications of East Asian landscapes and envision an anthropology that goes beyond boundaries.

More information for EAAA participants:

There is no registration fee for EAAA paper presenters and discussants. Presenters and discussants are also provided with meals during the conference and a post-conference tour on Oct. 5, 2015. For other participants, a registration fee of US $100 is required. The method of payment will be announced shortly. All EAAA participants are responsible for their own airfares and lodging. Two guesthouses are recommended for EAAA participants: the Activity Center of Academia Sinica and the International Housing of National Chengchi University. The conference will arrange a roundtrip shuttle bus between the Academia Sinica and the conference venue on Oct. 3-4. Since the living accommodation of these two housing is limited, so please register as soon as possible. We can only help reserve a room once we receive your registration. In addition, housing accommodation on these two campuses is not guaranteed. So we highly suggest that you register at your earliest convenience. Otherwise, you may need to arrange your own lodging in Taipei. To confirm your room reservation on the campus, we will need your travel itinerary by September 1, 2015.
