The 3rd Annual Khmer Studies Forum will be held at Ohio University, in Athens, Ohio on Friday, April 29 and Saturday, April 30, 2011. This Forum is being organized by the Center for Southeast Asian Studies at Ohio University.
The Khmer Studies Forum is an opportunity to facilitate discussion on all aspects of Khmer (Cambodian) studies, including but not limited to Khmer language, history, culture, economics, politics, education, and the arts. Scholars from any discipline are welcome to submit abstracts, and graduate students are especially encouraged to participate. Participation in the Khmer Studies Forum is free.
The Khmer Studies Forum welcomes both individual and group submissions. A maximum of twenty minutes will be allocated for each individual or group presentation, and presentations will be grouped into panels based upon similarity of subject matter or theme. You are also welcome to submit proposals for complete panels (maximum of four presentations per panel).
Abstracts should be between 250 and 300 words and submitted in WORD or PDF format. Please include the following information:
1) Name (if group, please list all participants)

Affordable on-campus guest housing is available, and there are several inexpensive hotels close to campus. Alternately, members of the Southeast Asian Studies community at Ohio University may be able to provide weekend accommodation to some forum participants.
