The 2nd Annual Southeast Asian Studies Symposium, organised by Project Southeast Asia, will be held on 9-10 March 2013 at the University of Oxford. The Call for Panels is now open until 1 October 2012.
Southeast Asia is a vitally important region of the world, and its most urgent issues are transregional and multidisciplinary in nature. Project Southeast Asia seeks to contribute to debate on and solutions to these issues by providing the Symposium as a platform for the dissemination, discussion, and debate of these issues.
The Symposium has three core aims:
- To present solutions for contemporary Southeast Asian issues by bringing together the brightest minds from all fields and disciplines, and from around the world. Its core goal is to promote the integration of the humanities and social sciences with science, medicine, and business in order to create solutions which are effective, viable, and appropriate to culture and geography.
- To build networks and relationships between current and future decision-makers in Europe and Southeast Asia, as well as connections between academia, politicians, NGOs, and business. Integral to the Symposium will be opportunities for Southeast Asian and European politicians, businessmen, academics, and NGOs to interact and build relationships.
- To promote the research of the most talented Southeast Asians and offer a platform for young academics to present their work.
Panels focusing on any topics relating to Southeast Asia are welcome. In particular, panels which focus on one or more of the following are highly encouraged:
a) contemporary Southeast Asian issues;
b) transnational Southeast Asian studies;
c) interdisciplinary approaches and collaborations;
d) methodological issues relating to Southeast Asian studies. Panel proposers are encouraged to involve partners from different institutions to promote international co-operation. Young and emerging scholars are particularly encouraged to advance panel proposals.
Submissions will be accepted in English. Proposals should be submitted using the Panel Proposal form at: www.projectsoutheastasia.com/academic-events/sea-symposium-2013/call-for-panels. Panel proposers will be expected to circulate their respective Calls for Papers from 15 October to 15 December 2012.
The Symposium will also offer alternative opportunities outside formal panels. These include a room for group meetings/discussions/project debates; an area for the display of posters; and the screening of movies and staging of art or cultural performances. Please email email@example.com if you are interested in any of the above.
