Call For Presentations: 2011 YCAR Graduate Student Workshop series

Call For Presentations: 2011 YCAR Graduate Student Workshop series

The York Centre for Asian Research (YCAR) invites proposals for its Graduate Student Workshop series taking place from January to April 2011.

This series is an opportunity for graduate students conducting research on Asia and the Asian diaspora to present their research-in-progress to graduate students and a York faculty member. It is intended for York students in graduate programs in the social sciences, humanities, fine arts, natural sciences and professional schools to get presentation experience and valuable feedback on their research in a friendly and supportive environment.

Guidelines for submissions:

  • Deadline for abstract submissions for the 2011 Graduate Student Workshop series is Dec. 20. Send submissions to Miriam Katz at
  • Presentation proposals should include a title and a short abstract of 250 words. Proposals should be related to research concerning Asia or Asian diaspora.
  • Students should also provide a short list of two or three potential York faculty members that they would like to comment on their research at the seminar and should indicate whether they have already approached the faculty members about this possibility. Note that each workshop presentation will have one faculty member discussant.
  • Submissions should also include a selection of dates between January and April 2011, when the student is unavailable to present, to assist with event scheduling.

YCAR was established in 2002 to advance the academic study of Asia (South, East and Southeast) and the Asian diaspora. It promotes excellence in research on historic and contemporary Asia and Asian diaspora communities. The centre cooperates with many partners at York, across Canada and internationally to promote public understanding of Asia and Asian diasporas and Canada’s multiple engagements with the region.

For more information, visit the YCAR website.
