CFP: Asian Association of World Historians

The Asian Association of World Historians (AAWH) invites proposals for panels and papers at its Third Congress to be held May 29-31, 2015, at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. The theme of the Congress is “Migration in Global History: Peoples, Plants, Plagues, and Ports.” The call for papers states:
Understood in the broadest sense, “migration” brings into focus questions about the movement of peoples, businesses, capital, ideas, goods, diseases, technologies, diverse forms of knowledge, artistic styles, ecologies, as well as medical and scientific discoveries and practices across global borders. . . . While the Congress committee welcomes panels and papers that address [the theme], it will also consider proposals related to other topics on the history of the Asia-Pacific from global and world perspectives, including (but not limited to) the interdisciplinary history of science, technology, medicine, business, and the environment.
Proposals must be submitted by 1 October 1, 2014. For more details, please see the full call for papers. Questions may be directed to the 2015 AAWH Congress Committee at 2015AAWH.Congress@ntu.edu.sg.
