The 4th Asian Conference on Humanities, Social Sciences and Sustainability – August 6-8, 2017 in Hiroshima, Japan.

About AXSUS 2017

We welcome you to join us in Hiroshima, Japan for the 4th Asian Conference on the Humanities, Social Sciences and Sustainability (AXSUS 2017) from August 6-8, 2017 at the ANA Crowne Plaza Hiroshima. AXSUS 2017 will be held jointly with the 4th Asian Symposium on the Humanities and Human Rights Education. Both events will coincide with the 72nd Hiroshima Peace Memorial and Remembrance Ceremony.

In addition to the conference, participants will have an opportunity to visit Hiroshima Peace Park and the Shrine Island of Miyajima — both are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Contemporaries tend to define sustainability as environmental issue; however, it is important to take a holistic perspective that embraces the critical relationship between ecological sciences and humanities. This is evident as human communities as well as their diverse biological and cultural heritage are increasingly threatened by mounting environmental and societal problems from climate change and exploitation of finite resources to the inequities and human costs of unsustainable practices and technologies.

Our shared biosphere and rapid globalization ensure no country is immune from another’s problems and risks, which means a collective and multidisciplinary approach is essential for integrating environmental and cultural sustainability. With the theme of ‘Resilience’ the conference will promote a critical understanding of the innovative and organic approaches from the humanities and social sciences toward sustainability.

Full papers are welcome, but not required. Registered participants with an accepted abstract and/or refereed full paper will be published in the Proceedings (ISSN 2188-6622). Oral, poster and virtual presenters shall be included in the Proceedings.

The Final Deadline for Proposals has been Extended to Friday, July 7, 2017.
