5th BAAS Conference in Tallinn 2022

We are happy to inform you that the 5th BAAS conference, “Asia in Transition / Tradition as the Source of Change”, will be held at Tallinn University on September 23-25, 2022.

The 5th BAAS conference, “Asia in Transition / Tradition as the Source of Change”, will take place September 23-25, 2022 in Tallinn University, Estonia. The conference aims to bring together scholars studying different regions of Asia and the Middle East, representatives of all academic fields and methodologies, aiming at a better understanding of the dynamism joining the old and the new in Asian societies and cultures. Both topics refer to change: aspects of contemporary transitions include the interplays of local, national, international or global influences in the region, while the study of traditions as the source of changes addresses the specifically Asian ways of introducing innovative social, cultural and political practices through the invocation of examples from the revered past. Both topics should be regarded in the widest possible scope. 

The call for papers and panels is put together. All the abstracts, even within panel proposals, will be assessed separately.

The call for papers and panels: March 28, 2022

Registration starts: June 15, 2022

We hope that the slight postponement of the conference will allow us to meet again in person in 2022 at Tallinn.
