“What’s Hot in Southeast Asia?”

Cornell Southeast Asia Program’s 17th Annual Graduate Student Conference , March 13-15, 2015, Kahin Center for Advanced Research on Southeast Asia, Cornell University in Ithaca, New York

The Cornell Southeast Asia Program invites submissions for its 17th Annual Southeast Asian Studies Graduate Student Conference. The conference will be held March 13-15, 2015 at the Kahin Center for Advanced Research on Southeast Asia at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. Professor Marina Welker from the Department of Anthropology at Cornell will be joining us as our keynote speaker.

We welcome submissions of abstracts from graduate students who have completed original research related to Southeast Asia. There is no specific theme for this conference, as we hope to attract a wide range of submissions. Our intention is to reflect the dynamic research currently undertaken by graduate students. The Cornell Southeast Asia Program’s Graduate Committee will review the abstracts, select presenters, and organize panels by theme. In order to aid this process of thematic organization, we ask that you please include a few keywords summarizing your presentation along with your abstract.


Selected contributors will present their work as part of a panel, and paper abstracts will be included in the conference program. All the panels will have discussants, therefore presenters should be prepared to submit full papers of 5000-8000 words by February 15.


A very limited number of modest travel allowances may be available for those traveling longer distances. We encourage applicants to seek funding from their home institutions first. Please indicate along with your abstract whether you expect to receive travel funding from your home institution and if you would like to be considered for a travel allowance from the Cornell Southeast Asia Program Graduate Student Committee. We will be in touch in February to coordinate graduate student host lodging for confirmed presenters. In the spirit of collegiate engagement, all presenters are requested to attend the entire conference.


Please submit abstracts to the following email address: All abstracts should be limited to 250 words and sent in MS Word format.  Do not send a .pdf. Please name your abstract using your first and last name together (for example, janedoe.doc for Jane Doe’s abstract). The subject of the message should specify “Abstract” and the body should include the following information:

  • Author name(s), institutional affiliation(s), and a primary email address
  • Title of paper
  • Paper topic or keywords
  • The abstract
