26th Annual Harvard East Asia Society Conference – Mirrors: Contemplating Asia
February 17 @ 1:00 pm – February 18 @ 5:15 pm
The 26th Annual Harvard East Asia Society Conference is coming up this week! The HEAS conference will take place in-person at Harvard’s CGIS South building on the 17th and 18th (Friday and Saturday) of February, 2023. The conference is open to all, and we encourage interested students and faculty to join us and participate in our panel discussions, please help spread the word! Attendance is free of charge, although if you would like to join us for dinner on Friday 2/17, there will be a $10 fee, and RSVP is required.
The theme of this year’s conference is: Mirrors: Contemplating Asia. The committee selected “mirrors” as a motif to invite reflection, introspection, retrospection, discussion, etc. about Asian Studies. That being said, the papers were not limited to explicit studies of the mirror as an object or concept. We welcomed scholarship that contemplates Asia from fresh perspectives while also reflecting upon conventional frameworks and methodologies from various perspectives and disciplines. The conference schedule and paper abstracts of all the panelists are listed in our conference booklet, which can also be accessed from our linktree at https://linktr.ee/harvard_heas.
We look forward to seeing you at the conference!
