7th EuroSEAS Conference (Lisbon, Portugal, 2-5 July 2013
PANEL 11 - COLONIAL AND NATIONAL RACIALIZATIONS IN SOUTHEAST ASIA
DEADLINE FOR ABSTRACTS: 30 November 2012
During the past three decades there has been increasing interest in the production and circulation of racial science for the construction of colonial and national regimes. Race concepts, taxonomies, and varied forms of “racism” have been constitutive of nineteenth and twentieth-century Western colonial regimes in Southeast Asia; but they may also appear as an enduring phenomenon that can pervade “post-colonial” nationalisms in the region. We envisage this panel as exploring how one racializes oneself or is racialized by others in a variety of settings, including the production of pure or originary identities and mixed or hybrid identities. The panel seeks papers that will focus on one or more of the following topics in Southeast Asia: (i) emergence and uses of racial sciences in late-colonial contexts; (ii) legacies and significance of racial science in processes of nation-building, (iii) indigenous and anti- colonial interactions with racial conceptions and formations.
