This years’ annual Southeast Asia Update will be co-hosted by the Van
Vollenhoven Instituut, the Institute for Cultural Anthropology of Leiden
University, and the Leiden University Institute for Area Studies (LIAS). Get a quick
fix of what is the newest of the new when it comes to research on this exciting
world region.

•Get an overview of on-going debates and recent research.
•Take the chance to present recent project findings or a new book.
•Listen to others, who are dealing with issues relating to Southeast Asia
from new and unfamiliar perspectives.
•Meet old friends and make new ones.
•Extend your network of Southeast Asian scholars in the Netherlands.

Throughout the Netherlands, established and beginning scholars alike are
involved in a broad range of research projects and disciplines dealing with
Southeast Asia. Whereas those working on similar subjects or nations tend to
know one another to a greater or lesser extent, a comparative approach to the
region is often less well developed. At the same time the presence of numerous
scholars from the region itself in Dutch academia is changing the research
agenda. It is our purpose to both monitor and stimulate such developments in
our annual gathering of Southeast Asia scholars.

We are now putting together a program of new and ongoing research projects,
book presentations, and poster presentations, and we also hope to allocate
plenty of time for discussion and informal get-togethers.
We invite speakers of all levels (PhD, post-doc or senior researchers) to present
new research in all stages on any part of Southeast Asia at the Third Southeast
Asian Update in the Netherlands.
We particularly welcome presentations on comparative research, either between
mainland and peninsular Southeast Asia, between two countries within SEA, or
with countries outside the Southeast Asian region.
If you would like to give a presentation on recent fieldwork results, present a
poster on your research project, or introduce a new book you are kindly
requested to submit the title and a short abstract of your presentation to the
organisers before 16 May 2011. The presentations plus discussion will be
maximally 15 minutes.

If you would like to attend the SEA Update, please send an email to Yayah

Siegers (, 071 5272295), for registration.

Hoping to hear from you soon,
