SubjectCall for Abstracts | 21st EWC International Graduate Student Conference on the Asia-Pacific


I hope this email finds you well. I am a co-chair of the annual International Graduate Student Conference (IGSC) at the East-West Center in Honolulu, Hawaii. The IGSC is an interdisciplinary academic conference bringing together graduate students and young scholars from around the world in an intellectually stimulating environment for discussion on issues relating to the Asia-Pacific region. The IGSC is a great opportunity to collaborate and learn from young academics, as well as to connect with other scholars of Asia and Oceania. This year's theme is particularly relevant to graduate students researching and integrating communities in the Asia-Pacific region, but is open to young scholars of all fields of study.

I am reaching out to ask for your assistance in sharing the below Call for Abstracts with any graduate students and young scholars who might be interested. The submission deadline is September 30th.

Thank you so much!

Best regards,
Manca Sustarsic
IGSC 2022 Co-chair
