Call for Papers: Annual EUSA AP Conference in May 2014
EU in the Shadow of Asia? Changing Relationships between the EU and the Asia Pacific 01 + 02 May 2014, Melbourne, Australia The discussion on the emerging powers of Asia is well established. However, there have been few Asia Pacific platforms where academics can present their research into how the concept of the coming century being one which pivots around Asia impacts on Asia Pacific – EU relations. A growing emphasis on Asia as an economic and political powerhouse also has implications for how the EU deals with other regions and how other regions in turn align or realign their foreign policies.

Timeline: Deadline for online-paper submissions: 31 January 2014 Successful applicants will be informed by mid-February 2014 Acceptance of the invitation to present: 10 working days after notification of acceptance via payment of registration fees (PayPal).

2015 Humanities Research Centre Visiting Fellowships Program now open
The Humanities Research Centre (HRC) is now accepting applications for the 2015 Visiting Fellowship Program. The deadline for applications is Monday, 15 April 2014. 2015 HRC Annual Theme - Global Languages The history of the world is characterized by great diversity in languages and societies as small groups split off and develop their own ways of talking and interacting. This diversity has been periodically checked by the rise of larger societies and economies, created by empires, evangelism and the demands of trade and diplomacy. Greek, Latin, Sanskrit, Arabic and Chinese have all held sway at different times and to different extents. The last century has seen the rise of one language, English, as a common means of communication around the world: in science, literature, academia, media, entertainment, trade and everyday talk. Its global reach is arguably unprecedented in the history of humankind. Languages such as Chinese, Spanish, Russian, Hindi and Bengali also have vast demographic constituencies, though not as much global capital as English. How do societies react to the language challenge? How do global languages influence ways of thinking and reasoning, ways of seeing the world, ways of expressing feelings? How does this affect small language groups? How do they influence other modes of communication? Global Languages, the Humanities Research Centre theme for 2015, provides the opportunity to explore these questions. Under this theme, the HRC will host conferences and symposia, including one dedicated to English as a world language. Other events will focus on issues of knowledge production, literacies, civilizational shifts and the geopolitics of language worlds. Between 10 and 15 fellowships will be awarded in this round. For more information and to download the applaction form visit the HRC website or contact Sharon Komidar.
