Establishing a Transnational Dialogue on Occupation
The aim of this three-day conference, organised through the ERC-funded 'Cultures of Occupation in Twentieth Century Asia (COTCA)' project, is to bring together scholars from a range of disciplines, backgrounds, and countries to explore the fundamental question which drives the COTCA project itself: ie, how does 'foreign occupation' (broadly defined) influence cultural expression?
Although the focus of COTCA is Asia, we welcome submissions from scholars working on occupation in other parts of the world, such as the Middle East, Europe, the Americas, etc. The organisers are particularly interested in comparative or theoretical papers which will help speak to a wider audience beyond specific cases of 'occupation'.
