CFP: 2014 SEA Student Conference: The Art of Not Being Governed
The Southeast Asia Club of Northern Illinois University is inviting undergraduate and graduate students to submit an abstract for the 2014 Southeast Asia Student Conference: The Art of Not Being Governed, which will be held at NIU in DeKalb, Illinois on April 5, 2014.
We are fortunate to have Professor James Scott of Yale University as keynote speaker for this year's conference. Prof Scott's keynote address is based on his widely read book of the same title.
We welcome submissions from various disciplines in the humanities and the social sciences. The abstract does not need to be exactly within the conference theme as long as if focuses on Southeast Asia. We will organize diverse panels to accommodate various topics and to facilitate broader students engagement.
Please invite your students to take advantage of this opportunity to present their work to a broader audience and learn from experts and peers who share their specializations. We will accept abstract submissions until February 15 and full papers for the accepted abstract are due on March 15. You may submit your abstract and full paper to firstname.lastname@example.org or to email@example.com. All papers will be eligible for undergraduate and graduate best paper awards, for which we offer a modest cash prize. More details are provided on the web with the call for papers and the poster.
This conference is co-sponsored by the Graduate Colloquium Committee, the Department of Political Science, and the Center for Southeast Asian Studies at Northern Illinois University.
