10th Singapore Graduate Forum on Southeast Asian Studies
Date: 24-26 June 2015
Venue: 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 10th Singapore Graduate Forum on Southeast Asian Studies on 24-26 June 2015.

This event coincides with the Asia Research Institute’s Asian Graduate Student Fellowship Programme 2015, which brings some 25 graduate students to ARI for a month and a half period. These students will also participate in the Graduate Forum.

Post-graduate 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 three-day forum, the tenth of an annual series of forums for graduate students who work on Southeast Asia, will be organised thematically. Themes broadly reflect (though not limited to) the core research strengths of the Asia Research Institute, including the Asian dynamics of religion, politics, economy, gender, culture, language, migration, urbanism, science and technology, population and social change.

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

Partial or full funding may be available for students whose proposals have been selected. Funding will cover board and lodging for the duration of the 3 day forum, and in selected cases, air travel to Singapore by the most economical means.
