Call for panels EuroSEAS 2021

Deadline: 1 December 2020
Conference dates: 7-10 September 2021
Venue: Palacký University, Olomouc, Czech Republic

The European Association for Southeast Asian Studies (EuroSEAS) will hold its 11th conference at the Palacký University in Olomouc, Czech Republic from 7-10 September 2021.

Covid-19 disclaimer: Under the current circumstances a physical conference cannot be guaranteed. EuroSEAS and the Organising Committee will, of course, have to follow international, national and local regulations. Naturally, our intention is to meet in person but force majeur cannot be ruled out. In case a physical conference is not possible, the board would do its best to facilitate and organize an on-line EuroSEAS conference or series of activities.

As an international and multi-disciplinary organisation, EuroSEAS invites scholars and PhD students from all academic disciplines with an interest in Southeast Asia to submit panels that explore relevant research topics from an interdisciplinary perspective as well as discuss theoretical and methodological aspects of research generated in the field of Southeast Asian Studies.

Proposals are also invited for a limited number of roundtable discussions about recent developments in Southeast Asia; for a limited number of laboratories that would develop cross-disciplinary collaboration; and for screenings with academic discussion of documentaries or artistic movies on various topics from Southeast Asia.

Proposals for panels, roundtables and laboratories do not need a list of participants yet, just an abstract and a convener will do! However, please note that panels should reflect a variety in the national/regional background and home institutions of the participants.

Due to a limit on the number of participants (aprox. 400) during the 2021 EuroSEAS conference in Olomouc, the organizing committee will favour (but not limit its selection to) panels, roundtables and laboratories on language, literature, performing arts, postcolonial studies, and archaeology/material culture – fields that were underrepresented in previous conferences.
