CALL FOR PRESENTATIONS | 4th Southeast Asia Update 22 JUNE 2012 (Radboud University Nijmegen, 22 June 2012, Deadline: 25 May 2012)

This years’ Southeast Asia Update is being organized by the Centre for Pacific and Asian Studies (CPAS) of the Radboud University Nijmegen. At present, we still have a number of presentation slots to fill and invite presentations. The deadline is 25 May. Get a quick update on the ongoing and exiting research that is being carried out in the region.  

  • 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.


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. Therefore, the Southeast Asia Update brings researchers working on the region together on a yearly basis.

We are presently putting together a programme that 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.  

Our 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
