Association of Asian Studies Conference, Singapore July 17-19, 2014

Thursday, September 19, 2013 - 7:05pm
Association of Asian Studies

We are proposing a panel "The Nation & Its Discontents" in the upcoming Association of Asian Studies Conference to be held at Singapore during July 17-19, 2014. The 'nation-state', as often been argued, is an overtly restrictive projection of a model derived from western European experience onto the non-West where it may not apply. While acknowledging that the idea of the 'nation' renders disjunctive temporalities, and multiple vernacular iterations, this panel seeks to understand the politico-cultural stakes in the exportation and reception of a 'foreign' model, and the voices silenced thereby.

We invite papers from a variety of disciplines, geographies and time periods. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
