Regional Conference: New York Conference on Asian Studies (NYCAS)

Starts:  Oct 7, 2022 09:00 AM (ET)
Ends:  Oct 8, 2022 05:00 PM (ET)
In association with the New York Conference on Asian Studies (NYCAS), Syracuse University is hosting the 2022 NYCAS Conference in person on October 7 and 8 on the theme of “State and Society in Asia: Past and Present.”

Recent events such as the successes and failures of states at mitigating the COVID-19 pandemic; the targeting of religious, racial and ethnic minorities; widespread protests against military regimes; the possibility of a new cold war between China and the U.S.; and the dramatic takeover of Afghanistan by Taliban forces have highlighted the ever-crucial role of the state in Asian societies, both in its presence and absence.

In bringing scholarly perspectives to these current events, questions that interest us include: What historical legacies of the state persist in contemporary Asia? What roles do technology and urban development play in extending state power to unprecedented degrees?
