The Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures at the University of Southern California Graduate Student Conference invites graduate students from around the world conducting research in all disciplines related to East Asia to submit abstracts for our 2015 conference, to take place April 11 - 12, 2015. Co-sponsored by the East Asian Studies Center, the Center for Japanese Religions and Culture, the Korean Studies Institute, the Bryan Singer Division of Critical Studies, and the Center for Transpacific Studies, this conference aims to investigate and formulate new theorizations of memory, moment, and mobility as well as rethink how communities and individuals construct narratives in the context of East Asia. All three topics can be interpreted widely in relation to various fields, including linguistics, history, religion, literature, visual studies, new media, and cinema.

Topics can include but are not limited to:

- The role of mobility in second language acquisition
- Constructed narratives of history or remembering in film, literature, and/or language
- Intersection between transpacific movement and religion
- Construction of memory in transnational cinemas
- The interplay between memory and moment in literature
- Representations of memory and history in East Asia
- Examining local communities in relation to global migration

 Submissions are welcome from graduate students in all disciplines. Papers should be related to East Asia, including East Asian interactions with the wider world.

Applicants should submit an abstract (max. 300 words) and a short biography (max. 150 words) to uscgsea at gmail.com by November 30, 2014 (5:00 p.m. PST).
