Transpacific Connections: Perspectives, Dialogues, Future Visions

The Transpacific Studies Network (TPSN) was established in the fall of 2022 with the goal of providing new impulses in the research of Pacific cultures, ecologies, histories, literatures, politics, and societies in an interdisciplinary, multi-lingual, and, importantly, transregional manner. Following the successful conference Transcending Boundaries, held in February 2024 at the University of Mainz, Germany, the TPSN is planning to publish a collected volume on the broadly conceived theme of “Transpacific Connections.” To this purpose, we invite scholars, practitioners, and artists to share their research, art and insights concerning the transpacific to submit proposals for articles or artwork exploring connections across national and regional borders in, along, and related to what has been termed the Pacific Rim. We especially encourage suggestions and applications that entail original and alternative indigenous knowledge and scholarship approaches.

For further details, please take a closer look at the Call for Papers.

Proposals of no more than 300 words should be submitted along with a 100-word biography to by October 1, 2024.

For further information, please contact Sandra Meerwein.
