Southeast Asian Geography Association (SEAGA)
2008 International Conference
3-6 June 2008
Quezon City, Philippines
Theme: Transformations and Embodiments in Southeast Asian Geographies: Changing Environments, People and Cultural Groups, Institutions and Landscapes
The Program Committee invites conference presentations from geographers from Southeast Asia and other parts of the world, affiliates of academic societies, officials and practitioners from public and private institutions, and independent scholars from the different fields in the social and natural sciences who are undertaking geographic studies and other researches that are related to the 2008 Conference theme. The Committee encourages creative and innovative paper presentations. At the same time in addition to panels, formats including thematic workshops, roundtable discussions, and other departures from traditional formal paper presentations are encouraged. The Committee particularly welcomes interdisciplinary or border-crossing proposals that enrich the various approaches in undertaking historical, chronological, geographic and other studies. Young scholars are especially encouraged to participate.
Proposals should be submitted to the 2008 SEAGA Conference Secretariat via email (firstname.lastname@example.org / email@example.com) by January 14, 2008 (for abstracts of organized panels) and by January 21, 2008 (for individual paper abstracts). A proposal must include a 150-word abstract of the panel/paper as well as the name, affiliation, and contact details of the proponent. Panels that will be organized by potential chairs will be given priority but individual paper proposals will also be given equal consideration. Topics for paper proposals/panels include the following: environment, gender and migration, hazards and mitigation, development and sustainability, culture and politics, geographic education and urban geography. Other relevant topics may be proposed.
The Southeast Asian Geography Association (SEAGA) is a scientific and educational society that was set up in 1990 by a group of geographers to organize the inaugural SEAGA Conference in Brunei Darussalam. Its members share interests in the theory, methods, and practice of geography and geographic education. As of February 2006, the association is formally registered with Singapore’s Registrar of Societies (see www.seaga.co.nr/).
The 2008 SEAGA International Conference will pave the way for the formation of a Council of Southeast Asian Geographers. This historical juncture will take place within the premises of the Philippine Social Science Council office in Diliman, Quezon City, Philippines.
