Harvard East Asia Society Conference 2024 – Knots: Complex Legacies and Imagined Futures of East Asia
February 16 @ 12:00 pm – February 17 @ 5:00 pm
The Harvard East Asia Society (HEAS) Graduate Student Conference is an annual event which provides an interdisciplinary forum for graduate students to exchange ideas and discuss current research on topics related to Asia. The conference allows young scholars to present their research to both their peers and to renowned scholars in relevant fields. All panels will be moderated by Harvard University faculty. The conference will also allow participants to meet others in their research area conducting similar research and to forge new professional relationships.
The theme of this year’s conference is: Knots: Complex Legacies and Imagined Futures of East Asia. The knot is a traditional form of art that can be found throughout China, Korea, and Japan, made from the orderly connection of different individual threads. The committee chose the figure of the knot to represent the intertwined memories, legacies, and histories of interaction between and throughout the different parts of the region we now call East Asia. We thus welcomed scholarship that attempts to bridge different spaces, times, and disciplines, which includes (but is not limited to) history, philosophy, religion, literature, art history, sociology, anthropology, archaeology, economics, political science, gender studies, environmental studies, and law.
