7th IAFOR Asian Conference on Arts and Humanities (ACAH) 2016 Kobe

  • Conference Call
  • This inter­na­tional and inter­dis­ci­pli­nary con­fer­ence will again bring together a range of aca­d­e­mics and prac­ti­tion­ers to dis­cuss new direc­tions of research and dis­cov­ery in the arts and human­i­ties. As with other events of the Inter­na­tional Aca­d­e­mic Forum’s (IAFOR), ACAH2016 will afford the oppor­tu­nity for renew­ing old acquain­tances, mak­ing new con­tacts, and net­work­ing across higher edu­ca­tion and beyond.

    The 7th Asian Con­fer­ence on Arts and Human­i­ties (ACAH) will again be held along­side the 6th Asian Con­fer­ence on Lit­er­a­ture, Librar­i­an­ship & Archival Sci­ence (LibrA­sia) and will com­mence on April 710, 2016 in Kobe, Japan. Reg­is­tra­tion for either con­fer­ence will allow atten­dees to attend ses­sions in the other.
