The Asia Research Institute (ARI) of the National University of Singapore (NUS) invites applications from advanced postgraduate students who are engaged in research on Southeast Asia to attend its inaugural Singapore Graduate Forum on Southeast Asia Studies on 28 - 29 July 2006.
The two-day workshop, the first of an annual series of forums for graduate students who work on Southeast Asia, will be organised thematically around issues that include religion, international relations, politics, gender, and language.
In addition to student presentations, experts of the region have been invited to give keynote speeches. Among these will be Professor Wang Gungwu, Director of the East Asian Institute, NUS, and Professor Dato’ Shamsul Amri Baharuddin, Director of ATMA (Institute of the Malay World and Civilization), Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia.
Advanced postgraduate students working on Southeast Asia are invited to submit abstracts based on work in progress as well as polished final drafts. NUS students are encouraged to take advantage of this unprecedented opportunity to interact and exchange ideas with students from ASEAN countries as well as those from other regions whose interests focus on Southeast Asia.
Fees and Singapore expenses will be covered for those whose abstracts are accepted for presentation. Some funding is also available to cover regional travel costs, on application.
