The Liu Institute for Asia and Asian Studies is pleased to host the 66th Annual Meeting of the Midwest Conference on Asian Affairs at the University of Notre Dame, September 15–16, 2017. The MCAA seeks to promote Asian studies both at the university and the secondary and primary levels, and particularly to encourage scholarly interchange between Asianists located in the Midwest, though scholars from all regions are invited to participate.

Proposals are solicited for panels, roundtables, individual papers, and posters in all fields dealing with East, South, and Southeast Asia, the Asian Diaspora, and topical and comparative panels. Faculty, graduate, and undergraduate students, as well as independent Asianists, are encouraged to participate and attend.



The Liu Institute for Asia and Asian Studies promotes the awareness, understanding and knowledge of Asia both within and beyond the University community and provides a forum for integrated and interdisciplinary research and teaching on Asia.

Proposals are due by March 31, 2017.
