Palacký University Olomouc is a university with long-standing tradition. Founded in the 16th century, it is the oldest university in Moravia and the second-oldest university in the Czech Republic. Today it is a modern higher education facility with a wide range of study programmes and copious scientific and research activities. Almost 22,000 students are enrolled at its 8 faculties. Palacký University Olomouc is one of the very top Czech universities, and ranks among the best universities in the world, according to international rankings. [source]


Department

The conference is organized by the Department of Asian Studies at Palacký University Olomouc. The department focuses its teaching and research activities on languages, cultures, and societies of contemporary China, Japan, Korea, Indonesia, and Vietnam. It offers degree courses on undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate level.

We hope that despite the current challenges created by the coronavirus pandemic we will be able to welcome at least some of the participants in the conference in-person in Olomouc. However, the final decision about the format of the conference (online-only or hybrid) will be made closer to the conference date in the autumn of 2021.
