Call for Papers

The Centre for the Contemporary Pacific in conjunction with the National
Institute for Asia and the Pacific would like to invite honours and
postgraduate students and recent doctoral graduates in the humanities and
social sciences to participate in a Pacific Islands workshop during Asia
Pacific Week February 1-7, 2004.

The workshop is designed to showcase the work of younger Pacific scholars
in a formal setting and will also provide an avenue for them to network
with like-minded scholars.  The Pacific program of Asia-Pacific Week will
also offer participants a program of activities including presentations by
prominent Pacific scholars, journalists and regional dignitaries and
discussions on contemporary issues including security, the environment and
political change.

In recent years, the Research School of Pacific and Asian Studies has
witnessed the decline of Pacific Studies in key areas.  With the imminent
retirement of several prestigious Pacific scholars, the responsibility for
rejuvenating Pacific studies in part lies in the hands of the next
generation of Pacific scholars.

The workshop will comprise six thematic one and a half hour sessions, each
beginning with an introduction by a senior Pacific scholar followed by
three 20-minute papers and 25 minutes of discussion.

The workshop will conclude with a summation of workshop themes and
discussion of potential avenues for the strengthening of Pacific
scholarship and future collaboration.

Limited funds will be available to help defray travel and accommodation
costs for participants.

Expressions of interest in participating in the workshop and including
titles and abstracts of proposed papers should be forwarded to Michael
Morgan at> or
David Hegarty, Convenor of the Centre for the Contemporary Pacific on>
