CfP Asia and Africa in Transition PhD Workshop

July 31, 2020 - 08:00-17:00

19-20 October 2020 │ University of Copenhagen
NIAS – Nordic Institute of Asian Studies and Asian Dynamics Initiative

Though the annual 2020 NNC/ADI conference has been postponed to 2021 as a consequence of the global coronavirus, the PhD workshop will take place on the dates initially planned. It will be an intensive workshop for a limited number of PhD students working on Asia.

Depending on prevailing conditions at the time it is likely to be a hybrid event, with the possibility of attending in person or via an online platform. However, if necessary the workshop will be held entirely online.

The aim of the PhD workshop is to bring together promising doctoral students from various disciplines focusing on a diverse range of Asia related topics. In light of the forthcoming ADI/NNC conference Asia and Africa in Transition  (June 2021) Asia-Africa related topics are very welcome.

We especially encourage PhD students from the Nordic region to apply.

The students present their research proposal or a key chapter from their thesis to all other participants. A panel of senior scholars will provide constructive feedback on the submissions.


  • 31 July: Deadline for submitting application
  • 15 August: Notification of acceptance by organising committee
  • 1 October: Deadline for submitting paper
