Event Navigation

Book of abstracts online available!

The Institute of Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology (CADS) of Leiden University organizes this year’s annual Southeast Asia Update in cooperation with the Royal Netherlands Institute of Southeast Asian and Caribbean Studies (KITLV) and the International Institute for Asian Studies (IIAS). The Southeast Asia Update offers scholars and those interested in the region a platform to meet colleagues and to discuss current issues and new trends. The Update offers especially a platform for young researchers in the Netherlands and neighboring countries to present their work to larger audience.

This year we will also organize three round tables on three themes that in their urgency have a serious impact on the region:

-Climate Change and Environmental Prospects for Future SEA
-Pluralism, Violence and Religious Renewal
-Urban mass culture in colonial Java, 1900-1940

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to get a quick update on new research on Southeast Asia and to meet new colleagues and old friends!

If you want to attend the Update, please contact Yayah Siegers for registration before 13 June 2016: [email protected]
