CFP: SOAS “Movement: Southeast Asia” Conference, September (apps due 7/28)

The Centre of South East Asian Studies at SOAS (University of London) will be hosting a conference for Masters students, Ph.D. students, and recent graduates in September.  Applications are due this Friday, July 28.  Only limited travel funding may be available, but presenters who are not able to attend in person will be encouraged to participate via tele-conference.  Here’s an excerpt from the CFP, available in full at

For this first postgraduate conference on Southeast Asia at SOAS, we invite papers that consider “movement.” For example, how can we critically investigate migration? Conflict and forced displacement? Diaspora and transnationalism? Trade and the transfer of capital or goods? The movement of objects in and out of the region? Political movements? Social movements? Artistic movements? The movement of bodies in performance? Exchanges of ideas? Musical, visual, or filmic influences? Translation? Changes in the natural or architectural landscape? Climate change, resources, and resilience? Or indeed rethinking the delimitations of Southeast Asia as a region—and as an object of “area studies”?
