Asia: Global Challenges, Regional Conflicts, and National Logics

The next German Association for Asian Studies’ (DGA) biannual Conference on Contemporary Asia will be held April 3–5, 2019 in Würzburg, Germany. The conference languages will be German and English.

The organising committee has selected the panels, and the call for papers is now open. Since each panel will only be able to accommodate 3-4 papers, we strongly advise early submission of paper proposals. The call for paper proposals will be closed on October 7, 2018.


Important dates

Dear all,

Within the next days, all paper submitters will receive the acceptance or rejection information regarding their paper from either the panel organizers or the conference organizers. As we had some delay in the process of paper selection, the registration deadline for paper writers is extended until November 25!!!

Kind regards

DGA organizing team
