CALL FOR PAPERS | Living in an Age of Precarity: Living and Lives in 21st Century Asia
October 17, 2016
Precarity, once a French neologism (precarite), is today purportedly the word for our time. It is a description of a specific subjectivity, an existential angst of living a life of ambient insecurity, strongly suggestive of the breakdown of stable social bonds and identities, and the disappearance of old reliances.
In this conference, we invite scholars and researchers to tackle the notion of precarity as the new social condition of the Global South, but specifically in the Asian region.
Paper proposals should include a title, an abstract (250 words maximum) and a brief personal biography of 150 words for submission by 17 October 2016. Please send proposal using the provided template to [email protected] Successful applicants will be notified by mid November 2016 and will be required to send in a completed draft paper (5,000-8,000 words) by 13 January 2017.
Submission deadline: 17 Oct 2016
Conference dates : 27 Feb 2017 – 28 Feb 2017
