MARTIAL ARTS STUDIES
Cardiff University, 10-12 June 2015
Organiser: Paul Bowman
Martial Arts Studies: An International Interdisciplinary Conference
What is martial arts studies?
What could it be?
Is it a specific new field or is it always going to be a subsection of other disciplines?
What are the possibilities and limitations of creating or developing martial arts studies?
What are its key concerns, problematics, theories, orientations, and methodologies, and why?
Building on recent work, such as the 2014 special issue of JOMEC Journal on martial arts studies, this conference invites proposals for 20minute papers that engage with key questions about the field, as well as papers that present current work in any aspect of martial arts studies
