2ND SINGAPORE GRADUATE FORUM
Singapore : The Asia Research Institute (ARI) of the National University of Singapore (NUS) invites applications from advanced postgraduate students who are engaged in research on Southeast Asia to attend the 2nd Singapore Graduate Forum on Southeast Asia Studies on 26 – 28 July 2007.
Postgraduate students working on Southeast Asia are invited to submit abstracts based either on work in progress that is at an advanced stage, or on completed work. NUS students are encouraged to take advantage of this unprecedented opportunity to interact and exchange ideas with students from ASEAN countries as well as those from other regions whose interests focus on Southeast Asia.
This two-day workshop, the second of an annual series of forums for graduate students who work on Southeast Asia, will be organised thematically around issues that include religion, international relations, politics, gender, and language.
In addition to student presentations, experts of the region will also be invited to give keynote speeches, sharing their insights on challenges and issues facing contemporary social science scholarship.
Registration fees and Singapore expenses will be covered for those whose abstracts are accepted for presentation. If necessary, students may also apply for some funding to cover regional travel costs.
Marking the completion of the Asean Research Scholars’ Programme 2007, the Forum will also facilitate communication and cooperation among the postgraduate students as they mature into the next generation of academic leaders.
