                      Call for Papers: East Asian Junior Sociologists Forum

                       

                        We are pleased to announce a call for papers for the East Asia Junior Sociologists Forum (EAJSF) scheduled in Yokohama, Japan, on July 13, 2014.  The Forum is designed to be an international event wherein students and junior researchers from East Asian countries will convene to meet, present research projects, and engage in lively discussions.  East Asia has been an academic focus in recent years.  With rapid socioeconomic and cultural transformations in the last few decades, East Asia now faces a set of new problems.  In accordance with the growing attention, academic gatherings, such as conferences, meetings, and forums, have increasingly been held, functioning as venue to discuss issues common to East Asian countries.  Interestingly, no academic meetings have been held so far in East Asia that pay exclusive attention to the voices of scholars in younger generations.  Junior researchers and students are the ones who will carry sociological endeavor into the future.  East Asian Junior Sociologists Forum (EAJSF) has been conceived of as, and is designed to become a platform where next-generation students and researchers in East Asia gather, meet, present their own work, and exchange.

                        EAJSF is scheduled on July 13 to synchronize with the opening of the XVIII ISA World Congress of Sociology.  The Forum will share the venue with the ISA World Congress of Sociology.  We invite fellow young researchers residing in or doing research on China, Korea, Taiwan and Japan to submit abstracts to the EASJS office (email address).  The forum aims to offer junior sociologists from four countries a chance for networking that will extend into future academic collaborations.
