5th Annual Martial Arts Studies Conference

23-24 May 2019, Chapman University, Orange, California.


Martial Arts, Culture and Politics


This conference focuses on the relations between martial arts, culture and politics. Martial arts can be understood in any of many ways, and the conference aims to reflect this diversity and plurality of understandings of the term. Similarly, ‘culture’ and ‘politics’ can be understood in a variety of ways. Again, the conference is open to works that use any academic approach to the theory and analysis of culture and politics.
