Dear IACS Supporters, 

We want to acknowledge the great many people who have already submitted their paper proposals. 

Given the many requests for an extension of the proposal submission deadline, the steering committee has decided to extend the deadline to  February 15th, 2017 (18:00 EST). 

For those who already submit your abstract, we’ve already started the review procedure. So please don’t submit your abstract again. 

We hope you take advantage of the extended deadline to submit your proposal. We look forward to hearing from you.

“Worlding: Asia Beyond/After Globalization”

Globalization as a concept has reached an impasse exhausted of its potential to generate imagination and critique. Hence worlding, defined in various ways such as “the whole new way to globalize” and “the art of being global”. In worlding, we are invited to re-imagine globalization in a new light unaffected by the dominant discourses of state and business. Unlike globalization, wording is neither a fatalistic structural force nor the triumphant sweep of neoliberal capitalism. It is practice of world-making, a pursuit of an alternative globalization (or globalizations).

The Inter-Asia cultural studies scholarship has been an effort to engage in cultural and intellectual construction of Asia. What Asia has been made during this initial phase? What Asia should be made in the future? With the theme of worlding, the 2017 conference hopes to re-examine the efforts thrown thus far and to appreciate emerging trans-bordering forms in Asia outside or in the gaps and cracks in the neoliberal hegemony. The term should open up new research areas and agendas of inter-Asia cultural studies.
