      Call for Papers: The Olympic Games in East Asia

      The Center for East Asian Studies at the University of Kansas invites
      proposals for papers to be delivered at an interdisciplinary symposium on
      the Olympic games in East Asia. The symposium will be held in spring 2008
      in Lawrence, Kansas. Proposals from all disciplines-history, film studies,
      geography, culture studies, anthropology, environmental studies, urban
      planning, etc.-will be welcomed.

      The symposium will consider the Olympic games in Tokyo (planned for 1940),
      Tokyo (1964), Sapporo (1972), Seoul (1988), Nagano (1998), and Beijing
      (2008) and their impact on the politics, cultures, economic conditions,
      international relations, natural and built environments, and lifestyles of
      the host countries and the region. Papers on Olympic sport culture in East
      Asia, Asian nations and athletes in the larger Olympic movement, the history
      of the Asian Games, and other related topics will also be considered.

      Please submit a two-page curriculum vitae and a proposal of 250-500 words by
      June 1, 2007. Electronic submissions are encouraged. The organizers plan
      to publish the symposium papers and limited funding should be available to
      help defray travel costs for those participating in the symposium.
      Proposals from advanced graduate students will be given full consideration.
