The International Academic Forum in conjunction with its global partners, is proud to announce the Third Asian Conference on Asian Studies to be held from May 24-26 2013, at the Ramada Osaka, Osaka, Japan.

Conference Theme: "Intersecting Belongings: Cultural Conviviality and Cosmopolitan Futures"
Contemporary contexts of the local, regional, national and global raise urgent questions about cultural conviviality and cosmopolitan futures across Asia. These are times when trans-cultural, trans-national and multicultural belonging are particularly being tested through environmental catastrophe, economic volatility, parochialism, fundamentalism, notions of cosmopolitan and multicultural exhaustion, and war. Belonging has become a fundamental dynamic of preservation, atavism, tradition and survival as well as hybridity, possibility, change and transformation. The aim of this conference theme is to open up discussion, exploration and analysis in Asian Studies about emerging social, economic, political and cultural trends formed at the intersection of multiple and multi-sited belongings.
