23rd Annual Graduate Student Conference on East Asia
Columbia University in the City of New York
Friday February 14th to Saturday February 15th, 2014
Graduate students (and qualified undergraduates) are invited to submit abstracts for the 23rd Annual Columbia Graduate Student Conference on East Asia. This two-day conference -- the oldest of its kind in the nation -- provides students from institutions around the world with the chance to meet and share research in progress with their peers. In addition, participants will gain valuable experience presenting their work through discussion with fellow graduate students as well as Columbia faculty.
Participants can take part in the conference as presenters or discussants. Presenters deliver a talk no longer than 15 minutes that summarizes research in progress. Discussants introduce the panelists, offer feedback, and facilitate the 20-minute discussion session following the presentations. Please indicate on your application which role(s) you are applying for.
