The Twelfth International Convention of Asia Scholars (ICAS 12)

The Twelfth International Convention of Asia Scholars (ICAS 12) is a global space in which Asia scholars and social and cultural actors from all over the world engage in dialogues on Asia that transcend boundaries between academic disciplines and geographic regions. The twelfth edition of ICAS was held from 24 to 28 August 2021.

The special focus of ICAS 12 was “Crafting a Global Future”; presentations at ICAS 12 involved topics from all Asian Studies disciplines in the broadest possible sense. Due to the global circumstances, ICAS 12 manifested its theme in a dynamic virtual form. Unlike the previous editions, which were hosted in different countries together with local partners, ICAS 12 was organized for the first time entirely online by the ICAS Secretariat in Leiden in partnership with Kyoto Seika University, Japan.

The Twelfth International Convention of Asia Scholars facilitated interdisciplinary dialogues on Asia and attracted 1500 scholars, civil society representatives, practitioners, publishers and artists who gathered online in more than 300 live discussion sessions to exchange and discuss their latest research.

The ICAS Conference Proceedings is doubtlessly a mere excerpt of the richness and diversity of ICAS 12. These 94 articles represent the advancements in the field of Asian Studies and depict the ongoing research on the themes of Arts, Economy, Development and Urbanization, Education and Knowledge, Environment and Climate Change, Gender and Diversity, Heritage and Culture, History, Language and Literature, Media and the Digital Age, Migration and Diasporas, Philosophy, Region and Beliefs, Politics and International Relations and Society and Identity.
