The scholarship covers inexpensive travel to and from Copenhagen and accommodation in a NIAS room at Nordisk Kollegium, with full board for a period of two weeks. Stays are subject to a time schedule administered by NIAS.
Extended Deadline: Nordic Asian Studies in the 21st Century. Conference & Ph.d Course.
At the beginning of the 21st Century, relations with Asia have become crucial not only for the private, but also for the public sector. Economic, political and cultural relations between the West and the East are growing, and the need in our part of the West – the Nordic region – for solid knowledge about Asia, is also growing.
The program will consist of keynotes, panel debates, roundtables, informal discussions and networking. Colleagues who want to present a paper are invited to do so. Colleagues who will take this opportunity to listen to the keynotes and panel debates but not present, are also most welcome to do so.
