Netherlands | 4th Southeast Asia Update meeting


The annual Southeast Asia Update meeting brings together researchers working on the region, and is organised by the Centre for Pacific and Asian Studies (CPAS) of the Radboud University Nijmegen on 22 June.

Throughout the Netherlands, a large number of scholars are involved in research projects dealing with Southeast Asia. Whereas those working on comparable subjects or countries know each other well, the general academic exchange on Southeast Asia in The Netherlands remains rather limited. At present, there are still a number of presentation slots to fill and invite presentations. The deadline for presentation proposals is 25 May:
  •  Get an overview of on-going debates and recent research on Southeast Asia.
  • Take the chance to present recent findings, your research project or a newly published book.
  • Listen to other researchers who present current research projects, new findings and hot debates.
  • Meet old friends.
  • Extend your network on Southeast Asian scholars in the Netherlands.
The programme comprises presentations of new and ongoing research projects, book presentations, and poster presentations. Moreover, the programme provides time for discussion and get-togethers. As always, presentations should be sharp and succinct. The maximum time for presentation and discussion is 15 minutes, as to allow for as diverse and interesting a programme as possible. The explicit aim is to include young researchers and Ph.D. candidates in the programme. Anyone with an interest in giving a presentation on recent fieldwork results, presenting a poster on research projects or wishing to introduce a newly published book should contact the organisers before. Powerpoints and the usage of images are encouraged. Presentations should be state of the art, short and informative. BA/MA students with an interest in Southeast Asia are welcome to attend (please register). Date: 22 June 2012 Time: 9.30 – 17.00 h Venue:  Campus Radboud University Nijmegen If you are planning to attend, please send an email to the KITLV secretariat ( for registration by 10 June.
