Call for Submissions - Best Graduate Student Paper Southeast Asia Council, Association for Asian Studies

The Southeast Asia Council's annual prize recognizes emerging scholarship in the field of Southeast Asian studies, from any disciplinary perspective. Graduate students at any stage, enrolled at the time of submission, are eligible and welcome to apply. The committee invites papers that fit the definition of 'conference papers,' i.e. of a length and scope that can be presented on an AAS panel, and that make an intellectual and/or methodological contribution to the study of Southeast Asia.

The papers for the next competition must be submitted following the AAS conference in Seattle, by 3 pm April 3, 2016. Please submit your paper and proof of student status to the committee Chair David Biggs at
Any questions regarding the prize can be sent to the same email address.
The award of $500 and a certificate will be presented at the 2017 AAS in Toronto.
The prize honors the memory of Pattana Kitiarsa who was Associate Professor in the Department of Southeast Asian Studies, National University of Singapore. He was born in the northeastern Thai province of Nong Khai and maintained his roots in this Lao-speaking region.  As a scholar, teacher, and friend he touched many people's lives. Sadly, Pattana passed away from cancer at the age of 46. With his passing the field lost one of its leading scholars of Southeast Asian labor, religion, class, and media.
