For anyone who isn't aware, from 3/31/11 until 4/3/11 the Joint AAS-ICAS (The Association for Asian Studies and the International Convention of Asia Scholars) conference is being held in Honolulu. Three forum members, LtDomer, LordAmeth, and myself will all be attending, so just to make an event out of it, we'll bring you live coverage of the event (relatively) via twitter (@samuraiarchives & @toranosukev) and you can also create a twitter search for #AASConference which we'll endeavor to add to the tweets. Also keep an eye here, on the facebook page, and the blog will be where the summaries of the most interesting presentations will be posted. I will also have my digital audio recorder, so I'll see if anyone will give me permission to record, and also we'll be putting together audio for a potential podcast based on the event as well.

Here is a link to the conference page:
http://www.asian-studies.org/Conference/index.htm

Here are some of the presentations I intend to go to:

Session 72: Monks of the Five Mountains & Shogunal Patronage of Zen in the Making of Muromachi Culture
Session 192: Negotiating One's Place in Japan's Long Sixteenth Century
Session 321: Before and After the Banquet: Culinary Discourse in Japan (1500-1900)
Session 541: Elite Patronage and Viewership of Japanese Art in the Age of the Toyotomi-Tokugawa Transition
Session 560: From Horseriders to Buddhist Devotees: China, Korea, and Japan at the Intersection of Visual Culture in the 5th-7th Centuries
Session 614: History, Literature, and Religion: Toward a New Paradigm for Kokugaku
Session 659: Nagasaki in the Eighteenth Century: Commercial and Institutional Change From Inside and Out


That still leaves me with space for at least five more presentations which I haven't decided on yet. The more than 100 lectures and presentations can be found here:
http://www.asian-studies.org/Conference/Print-Program.htm

feel free to respond to this thread with questions or recommendations on what else I should see, and LtDomer and LordAmeth, feel free to chime in here too.

Exciting stuff. Shogun, I'm glad you're going to a lot of the ones I wanted to go to that I cannot make it to. (Kabuki rehearsal. grr.)

But, here are some of the ones I'm hoping to make it to:

*Session 33: Other Languages of Legitimacy: New Perspectives on the History of Political Discourse across the Tokugawa-Meiji Divide
*Session 56: Theatre and Performance Indiv. Papers; incl. a talk on "The Influence of Place on the Performing Arts: Genroku Kabuki Scripts and Shijo-Kawara in Kyoto"
*Session 97: Shifting the Balance of Power: Maritime East Asia in the 17th century
*Session 157: Digital Archives and the Study of Japanese Foreign Relations; incl. talks on Taiwan Expedition of 1874, and US-East Asia relations 1850-1880 from Ryukyuan Perspectives
*Session 281: Recasting Okinawa: Race, Gender, and Transnationality in the Cold War and Beyond
*Session 408: Haafu, Mixed Race Studies, and Multicultural Questions in Japan
*Session 453: The Location of the Motif or How to Popularize Ideas: Late Edo Period Visual Language Shared in Ukiyo-e, Decorative Arts, and the Theatre

I don't know how much I'll be tweeting, since I just don't tend to do that during talks, and will likely be quite busy between talks too, but please do feel free to "Follow" me on Twitter @toranosukev. I am also hoping to write blog posts about the content of interesting talks as well as about the experience of the conference overall.

Looking forward to it.

I haven't had a chance to hammer out which I will go to, but I'll be taking a recording device, unless they post something that asks me not to. Just audio, not video.

Edit:


Okay, without looking at when these are scheduled yet, here's what I would *LIKE* to be at. Some of them, especially in the Inter-area section, are for one paper out of the whole bunch:

Edit again: Grouping by time, so I can try to figure out which I want to attend. If Kitsuno is looking at one, I'll probably skip it and go to another. While I'm definitely going to attend some Sengoku based ones, I also have to weight academic utility (how it relates to my classes) and relative value to my job.

New Edits in Bold--Bolded topics are those I will hopefully attend.


Thursday, 0800-1000:

Session 8: New Mediums, New Messages? - Changing Notions of Audience in East Asian Narratives

Session 12: Individual Papers: Security Policy in Asia

Argh. I should really go to 301, but it's hard to not go to the session led by my former prof. Kitsuno, any chance I could get you to go to 301 and record it for me?

And I've got my digital stereo recorder that will go with me. And we've got to set aside a few in-between sessions for some podcast worthy material. I HOPE there are no issues with recording - if not, I'll try to record as much of each lecture as possible, although my recorder only has 1.9 gigs of space, so I'm not sure exactly how much I can record.

As for the ones worth going to, I spent 2 hours at work going over every single one, so I'm guessing we'll have quite a bit of overlap - a lot of the lectures overlap time-wise, so I did my best to pick the most interesting one per timeslot.

Oh, and 'domer and 'meth, are either of you going to the free dinner and drinks at the Hilton Hawaiian Village the night before the whole thing kicks off? I'll be there. Gotta get my money's worth.

Probably going to the dinner thing, not sure yet. I just realized one of my undergrad profs is here presenting--she wrote me a recommendation for grad school, so I owe her dinner, at least. As to recordings, I've got a digital recorder I use for class--if we can bring computers, I can upload recordings in between sessions and clear the memory.

I can't go to the dinner thing on the Weds. Rehearsal. Again.

As for bringing a computer, I'd say based on my experience at other conferences, there should be no problem with bringing a computer to the conference. However, there is not wi-fi throughout the Convention Center. I think there is supposed to be some kind of "internet corner" or something set up so that attendees can use the 'net, though.

You've got a lot of my first and second choices - I'm still debating if I should go to #280 - it is just so bizarre I feel like I should go, but it also seems equally repulsive at the same time - it's like Brick McBurly and Obenjo got together and planned a lecture series Laughing
