Call for Papers: Southeast Asia Meet Up

Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Southeast Asia

University of Zurich, 1 December 2023

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. We would like to bring these varied strands of research together in a one-day, in-person “Southeast Asia Meet Up” in Zurich. The Meet Up is aimed at fostering exchange between academics from a wide range of disciplines in the social sciences and humanities working in and on the Southeast Asian region. It is a platform to present projects, share ideas, discuss teaching in and on the region, collaborate across disciplines and institutes, and make new and lasting connections within the field of Southeast Asian studies in Switzerland, and beyond. After a first successful edition of the Meetup in 2017, we encourage advanced postgraduate students, PhD students, postdocs, and senior researchers 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 is open to students interested in Southeast Asia.

Registration and application procedure

Registration and application deadline: 3 July 2023.
Please indicate whether you would like to present a paper or contribute a research poster. If you plan to present a paper, please send along a title and a short description/abstract of your project (max. 200 words).
