Call for Participants: the 5th SEASIA Biennial Conference “De/Centering Southeast Asia”

📅 18 – 20 July 2024
📍 University of the Philippines Diliman, Quezon City

Adopting the theme “De/Centering Southeast Asia,” the SEASIA 2024 Conference interrogates the dominant narratives and perspectives historically centered in the “West” and its gaze on Southeast Asia, and, instead, highlights the diverse and complex experiences, histories, cultures, and economic and political systems of the region as told by Southeast Asians themselves.

The Conference aims to promote a more nuanced understanding of the region, as well as provide a platform for Southeast Asians to reclaim their agency and identity.

Moreover, it seeks to contribute to the deepening of Southeast Asian consciousness and promote ASEAN centrality – key to developing the region’s independent position in the shifting regional and global geopolitical and economic architecture.

We invite 𝘳𝘦𝘴𝘦𝘢𝘳𝘤𝘩𝘦𝘳𝘴, 𝘴𝘤𝘩𝘰𝘭𝘢𝘳𝘴, 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘱𝘳𝘰𝘧𝘦𝘴𝘴𝘪𝘰𝘯𝘢𝘭𝘴 to join us at this conference to promote Southeast Asian scholarship and generate important conversations on the state and future directions of Southeast Asian studies.
