Narrating Southeast Asian Worldliness

2014/10/24 @ 9:30 AM - 6:15 PM

Date:24 October 2014
Venue:3335 Dwinelle Hall, University of California, Berkeley, USA

Center for Southeast Asian Studies (Kyoto University) and Center for Southeast Asia Studies (University of California-Berkeley) jointly co-organized a one-day symposium on “Narrating Southeast Asian Worldliness”.

Recent research in historical sociology and anthropology has attempted to broaden the frame of Southeast Asian Studies beyond the parochiality of studies of national areas by focusing on historical connections and circulations of culture, religion and commodities within Southeast Asia and between the region and the wider world.   This symposium focuses on worldly Southeast Asian networks and narratives from the period spanning the rise of modern nationalism to contemporary globalization, their ethico-political consequences and their broader implications for theorizing worldliness. There will be sessions on Southeast Asian world literature, labor migration and the relationship between nationalism and internationalism.
