Rising Voices in Southeast Asian Studies
Deadline July 1, 2017

The Southeast Asia Council (SEAC) of the Association for Asian Studies (AAS) is seeking paper proposals from up-and-coming scholars to join a “Rising Voices” panel on the broad topic of “Environmental Issues and Human Health in Southeast Asia.” We seek to recruit three early career scholars from Southeast Asian countries in order to form a panel for eventual inclusion in the 2018 Annual Conference of the Association for Asian Studies, to be held in Washington, D.C. from March 22–25, 2018.

Panel Topic Details:

For this year’s Rising Voices Panel, we seek to build a panel on the broad topic of “Environmental Issues and Human Health in Southeast Asia.” In addition to receiving financial support from the AAS/SEAC, this year’s Rising Voices Panel also has financial support provided by TRaNS: Trans-Regional and -National Studies of Southeast Asia ( http://journals.cambridge.org/action/displayJournal?jid=TRN).

The exact panel description will be developed and refined once panelists have been selected, but the theme is designed to be inclusive enough to solicit a wide range of applicants. Papers can discuss ways that transnational borderland identities are both formed and performed in various contexts, and may pursue the topic from any disciplinary angle, either contemporary or historical. Topics might include, but are not limited to:

  • Pollution and Human Health
  • The Wildlife Trade and Human Health
  • Environmental Degradation, Poverty, and Human Health
  • Government(s) in Southeast Asia, the Environment, and Human Health
  • The Anthropocene and Human Health
  • International Organizations, the Environment , and Human Health in Southeast Asia

The only restriction regarding proposed paper topics is that they must be about “Southeast Asia” and “Environmental Issues and Human Health in Southeast Asia.”

For further details on this year’s panel topic, eligibility, and selection criteria, please visit the call for papers at http://www.asian-studies.org/SEAC-Rising-Voices . Further questions may be addressed to this year’s panel organizer:thompsonc2@southernct.edu.
