As a culturally, politically and economically diverse and highly dynamic region,
Southeast Asia has attracted increasing interest among students and researchers
from various disciplines across Switzerland and in its neighbouring countries.
Inspired by an initiative from the Netherlands, we would like to bring these varied
strands of research together in a one-day Southeast Asia Meet Up. The Meet Up,
which we envision as a regular event, is aimed at fostering exchange between
academics from a wide range of disciplines in the social sciences and humanities
working on the Southeast Asian region. It is a platform to present projects, share
ideas, collaborate across disciplines and institutes, and make new and lasting
connections within the field of Southeast Asian studies in Switzerland, and beyond.
PhD students, postdocs and senior researchers are warmly encouraged to give a
short, 10-minute presentation on new, on-going, or recently completed projects.
There will also be an opportunity to exhibit recently published works on the book
table or present projects in the form of research posters. The event will be open to
students interested in Southeast Asia.
