8th International Martial Arts Studies Conference - 50 Years After Bruce Lee: Asian Martial Arts on Screen and Off


19-21 July 2023, University of Sheffield, UK

This conference – held on the 50th anniversary of his tragic death – seeks to interrogate the status of Asian martial arts, both on screen and off, in the wake of Bruce Lee. We invite abstracts that engage with the connections between Bruce Lee and Asian martial arts, whether in terms of cinematic styles, the development of martial arts discourses, or in the diverse connections of these realms with other areas of media, culture and society.

The conference seeks to bridge and connect the disciplinary fields of film studies, media studies and cultural studies, but the organisers are also open to proposals from related fields such as sociology, ethnography, anthropology, history and other forms of martial arts studies.

Martial Arts, Tradition and Globalisation


International conference at the University of Lausanne

June 29 -July 2, 2022

What are the relationships between martial arts, globalisation and tradition? What are the dynamics and effects of each on the others? This conference poses these questions to the growing interdisciplinary field of martial arts studies, in a landmark international event: a conference that brings together for the first time the Martial Arts Studies Research Network and the German Martial Arts and Combat Sports Commission. Taking place in the Institute for Sport Sciences of the University of Lausanne, Switzerland, with events also taking place at the Confucius Institute of the University of Geneva and the Olympic Museum, this is a major event for the international and multidisciplinary academic study of martial arts.
