Asian Conference on Asian Studies and Cultural Studies on 'Fearful Futures: Cultural Studies and the Question of Agency in the 21st Century'
Date: 1-3 June, 2018
Location: Kobe, Japan
Overview: The Asian Conference on Asian Studies (ACAS) is an interdisciplinary conference held alongside The Asian Conference on Cultural Studies (ACCS). This year's theme is 'Fearful Futures: Cultural Studies and the Question of Agency in the 21st Century'
This international and interdisciplinary conference will bring together a range of academics, independent researchers, artists and activists to explore the challenges that we face in the twenty-first century. While we have every right to fear the future, we also have agency in creating that future. Can we commit to a cosmopolitanism that celebrates difference and that challenges social inequity? On our ability to answer to that question affirmatively likely hangs our very survival.
