Conference Theme: “Encounters and Exchanges”
June 1–3, 2012 | The Ramada Osaka, Osaka, Japan
The Second Asian Conference on Cultural Studies, was held this year with the Second Asian Conference on Asian Studies, in Osaka, Japan. The event offered a diverse variety of papers that encouraged interdisciplinary reflection, and the forging of new relations across national borders. At just over 100 delegates, ACCS/ACAS 2012 was one of IAFOR’s smaller events, but no less diverse with over 25 countries represented in Osaka. Thanks to a friendly and open atmosphere, many relationships and friendships were forged during our time together and we hope these will continue and be renewed at next year’s event.
