CONFERENCE TOPIC AND PRESENTERS
PRECARITY IN AN INTER-CONNECTED NORTHEAST ASIA.
 
Despite expectations of more harmonious and friendly relations after decades of ideological confrontation, a sense of precarity pervades Twenty-first Century Northeast Asia. It is ironic that this anxiety is brought about together with the acceleration of globalization and the economic intimacy between the countries of the region. National borders ceased blocking the flow of people and capital, and people are more frequently exposed to opportunities for encountering “others.” However, such a phenomenon is neither unfamiliar nor unprecedented. We know that transformation always destabilizes the familiar milieu of life and causes a surge of anxiety. Northeast Asian countries including Japan, China, Korea, Russia, and Mongolia all experienced multiple paradigm shifts of international and domestic circumstances in their respective Modern history. So precarity is always, to different extents and in different ways, a part of daily life in the region. This conference aims to reveal the murkiness of anxiety through discussing cross boundary experiences in the past and present of Northeast Asia.
