Conference Announcement - Making Southeast Asian Cultures: From Region to World

UC Berkeley-UCLA Southeast Asian Studies Conference
April 22-23, 2016
UC Berkeley
Free and open to the public.

The conference seeks to understand the production of Southeast Asian cultures by drawing on different humanities and social science disciplines such as art history, film and visual studies, literary studies, music, anthropology, history, geography, architecture and urban studies. By self-consciously adopting a world perspective and transnational frame in the study of Southeast Asia, the conference hopes to correct the normative Eurocentrism of the disciplines, their methodological nationalism, and the relative undertheorizing of Southeast Asia in Asian studies.
