6th IAFOR Asian Conference on Asian Studies 2016 (ACAS) Kobe

  • Conference Call
  • The Inter­na­tional Aca­d­e­mic Forum (IAFOR) is kindly invit­ing you to par­tic­i­pate in the forth­com­ing 6th Inter­na­tional Asian Con­fer­ence on Asian Stud­ies (ACAS), which will take place on July 25, 2016 in Kobe, Japan.

    This inter­na­tional and inter­dis­ci­pli­nary con­fer­ence will again bring together a range of aca­d­e­mics and prac­ti­tion­ers to dis­cuss new direc­tions of research and dis­cov­ery in edu­ca­tion. As with IAFOR’s other events, ACAS2016 will afford the oppor­tu­nity for renew­ing old acquain­tances, mak­ing new con­tacts, and net­work­ing across higher edu­ca­tion and beyond.

    The Asian Con­fer­ence on Asian Stud­ies will be held along­side the Asian Con­fer­ence on Cul­tural Stud­ies and The Inter­na­tional Con­fer­ence on Japan and Japan Stud­ies. Reg­is­tra­tion for one of these con­fer­ences will allow atten­dees to attend ses­sions in the others.

    • Prof. Baden Offord — Cen­tre for Human Rights Edu­ca­tion, Curtin Uni­ver­sity, Australia
    • Dr. Thomas French — Rit­sumeikan Uni­ver­sity, Japan

    Pub­lish­ing Opportunities
