The aim of ACE is to encourage academics and scholars to meet and exchange ideas and views in a forum encouraging respectful dialogue.

The conference will bring together a number of university scholars working throughout Japan, Asia, and beyond to share ideas. ACE will afford the opportunity for renewing old acquaintances, making new contacts, and networking across higher education.

It is hoped that academics working in Japan and Asia will be encouraged to forge working relationships with each other, as well as with colleagues from Europe and the US, facilitating partnerships across borders.

"Dark Migrations: Territorializing the Savage Body" MMLA November 12-15 2009, abstract due April 20.

Jeff Aziz, University of Pittsburgh

This panel invites papers that engage with narratives that problematize the dominant American narrative of migration into the "savage" West. For instance, In Jim Jarmusch's 1995 film Dead Man, the Native American Xebeche is captured and shipped east by railroad caged as an animal in a sort of counter-migration, even as European settlers travel west into the territories from which his relatives are being displaced. Of particular interest are papers that explore the relationship between suffering, objectified, or commodified bodies and American landscape.
