The 2015 Texas Asia Conference is a biennial graduate student conference hosted to bring together young scholars, from any disciplinary background, who focus on some aspect of Asia.
Beyond the Spectacular and Mundane
As researchers engaged with various aspects and regions of Asia, how do we approach questions of scale? How do we draw boundaries around our research subjects: texts, people, languages, histories, etc.? How can we avoid the division of our subject along easy disciplinary lines? How do we measure the scale of what we are looking at—how far out must we extend our knowledge beyond our research focus in order for the boundaries of that focus to be meaningfully drawn? When what is local and specific is in a dynamic and entangled relationship with what is global and transnational, how do we choose to zoom in or out? How do we become attuned to the infra-ordinary? How do we grasp the affects and effects of the everyday that are neither ordinary nor spectacular? These are some of the broad concerns that we would like the papers at this conference to address in their own ways. Continue reading

Summer Prague University (SPU) is an intensive three-week language and cultural program designed for students of all levels held in the centre of Prague. In 2015, it will be held from July 13 through July 31, 2015.
The program is organized by SFF Servis Plus s.r.o. in cooperation with the Student Council of the Faculty of Arts, Charles University, and has been held since the 1990s. In addition to 75 language lessons, SPU offers a wide range of extra-curricular activities which aim to deepen students’ knowledge of the Czech language, literature and culture.
SFF servis plus language school primarily specializes in teaching English and Czech as a foreign language. This narrow specialization has allowed for the creation of top-quality, efficient language programs and assembly of a team of qualified, experienced and dedicated teachers.
During the summer, we annually offer a wide range of classes of Czech as a foreign language to satisfy all those interested in studying Czech. We have regularly held a three-week intensive course of Czech as a foreign language – Summer Prague University (SPU). This course is intended for students who want to improve their Czech proficiency as well as gain insight into the language as a whole, to learn about prominent Czech figures and the Czech Republic, but it is also attractive for those who want to spend three weeks in the beautiful city of Prague and take an active holiday while attending a top-quality language program.
Students who cannot attend the Summer Prague University course for the lack of time or who seek a different type of study can attend evening classes: either three-week intensive classes for beginners, Czech Starter, or four-week classes at pre-intermediate and intermediate levels focusing on the practical use of Czech and conversational skills in the language.
