Call for papers: 3rd Singapore Graduate Forum on Southeast Asia

The conference doesn’t specifically state archaeology, although at last year’s conference there were a couple of archaeology papers presented.

3rd Singapore Graduate Forum on Southeast Asia
Date: 28/07/2008 – 29/07/2008
Venue: Asia Research Institute, National University of Singapore, Bukit Timah Campus

The Asia Research Institute (ARI) of the National University of Singapore (NUS) invites applications from postgraduate students who are engaged in research on Southeast Asia to attend the 3rd Singapore Graduate Forum on Southeast Asia Studies on 28 – 29 July 2008.

Marking the completion of the Asia Research Institute’s ASEAN Research Scholars Programme 2008, the Forum provides a platform for communication and cooperation among the postgraduate students as they mature into the next generation of academic leaders.

Postgraduate students working on Southeast Asia are invited to submit abstracts based either on work in progress that is at an advanced stage (i.e. already completed data collection and analysis), or on completed work. NUS students are encouraged to take advantage of this unprecedented opportunity to interact and exchange ideas with students from ASEAN as well as those from other regions whose interests focus on Southeast Asia.

This two-day workshop, the third of an annual series of forums for graduate students who work on Southeast Asia, will be organised thematically. Themes will include (but are not limited to) issues in religion, politics, economy, gender, culture, migration, and population and social change.

In addition to student presentations, experts of the region will also be invited to give keynote speeches, sharing their insights on challenges and issues facing contemporary social science scholarship.

Registration fees and Singapore expenses will be covered for those whose abstracts are accepted for presentation. If necessary, students may also apply for some funding to cover regional travel costs.
