The 2018 Asian Languages and Literature Graduate Student Colloquium “Transnationalism and Transdisciplinarity” May 12th, 2018 University of Washington

The graduate student body of the Department of Asian Languages and Literature at the University of Washington is pleased to announce the 2018 Graduate Student Colloquium “Transnationalism and Transdisciplinarity” The one-day conference and workshop will provide an opportunity to both present research and to receive feedback on research projects.

This collaboration is intended to foster interdisciplinary dialogue within the University and the region. Given the disciplinary constraints of our various fields, it is our hope that increased dialogue will foster new insights and reveal resources that will deepen our research. This year’s colloquium will explore the various facets of transnationalism and transdisciplinarity.

Transnationalism reflects the crossing of cultural, ideological, and linguistic borders and boundaries. Multiple disciplines can provide different lenses and help us better understand cultures, language, communication, and identities. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:

•Analysis of nation-state ideology: nationalism, neoliberalism, colonization and decolonization, immigrants, and national identity;
•Language acquisition in a variety of contexts: internal migrants, distance learners, and immigrant learners;
•Language politics
•Politics and literature: imagination, resistance, and political identity;
•History and literature: collective memories, representation of the past, and trauma;
•Identity: cultural identity, mass culture, subjectivity and objectivity Participants in the colloquium can choose to participate in either the conference or workshop.

Conference presenters will deliver a talk no longer than 15 minutes that summarizes research in progress. Workshop participants can submit a work in progress to other members one week in advance and agree to read other participants’ submissions and provide constructive feedback. Graduate students of all disciplines are encouraged to submit proposals on Asia-related topics.

Please submit proposals of no more than 200 words by April 30 to Rie Tsujihara: Indicate in your email whether you would like to present at the conference or join a workshop. Proposals will be considered by representatives of the Department of Asian Languages and Literature.
