Titre: Conference on “Changing Research Styles, Methodologies and Perspectives on Southeast Asia”

Organizers: Jeremy Jammes and Victor T. King
(from the Institute of Asian Studies, Universiti Brunei Darussalam)

Location: Brunei Darussalam.

Date: 30 – 31 July 2018

Going back to the epistemological roots of any research in the social sciences and humanities, this conference aims to question the ‘regime of truth’ generated at the data-gathering level. Are there still some research areas to explore in Southeast Asia studies? Are there Southeast Asian societies and cultures still considered as ‘exotic’’, not-yet-explored and ready for new scholarly investigation? Can we come up with new methodologies, research materials and concepts to understand the tumultuous and rapid transformation of Southeast Asian peoples and cultures? Out of these changes, what is new and exciting empirically and conceptually, and what has transformed our current understandings of the human condition in Southeast Asia?  How have our changing approaches and the changing societies and cultures which we study influenced what we have discovered and how we have analyzed those findings in changing socio-cultural, economic and political contexts?
To tackle all these questions, our conference will give the opportunity to researchers in a range of disciplines embracing the social sciences and humanities to reflect on their personal relationship to the terrain, the fieldwork or the engagement with archives and library materials. But if a personal account might illuminate the motives and interests that could have inspired and edified research, it can also challenge our perceptions of the project of accessing and gathering research materials, the subject/object researched, and the societies themselves. We then need to incorporate changing approaches to field and library-/archival-based research: increasing team research, multi-site, trans-national, outsider-insider collaboration, multidisciplinary perspectives, increasing use of the internet and accessing materials beyond libraries and archives, the increasing importance of ‘the visual’, the materialities, the increasing concerns about reflexivity, the need to address the inexorable increase in the speed and complexity of change and the impulse of mobility (including the increasing urbanization of those populations which were primarily studied in rural contexts). Therefore, an important theme for conference participants will be based on a diachronic approach, encouraging researchers to reflect on and rethink their experiences of these changes both in their continuing personal and institutional research trajectories and in the ongoing need to address the ever-changing subjects of their studies.

Les rituels funéraires dans les manuscrits khmers
par Leng Kok-An, chercheur principal, Directeur de la conservation des manuscrits au Fonds d’Edition des Manuscrits du Cambodge – FEMC
Mardi 26 juin 2018 à 18h30
Conférence en khmer, traduite en français et en anglais
Entrée libre dans la limite des places disponibles

Les manuscrits gravés sur feuilles de latanier, recopiés de génération en génération depuis des siècles, étaient conservés dans les bibliothèques des monastères du Cambodge. La guerre, le régime des Khmers rouges et la négligence en ont provoqué la disparition presque complète. La lecture de ceux qui restent permet néanmoins de pénétrer le sens et de mieux comprendre l’organisation des rituels bouddhiques les plus familiers des Khmers.

CfP – ICAS 11, 11th International Convention of Asia Scholars

by M.C. van den Haak

We would like to invite you to prepare a proposal for the 11th International Convention of Asia Scholars (ICAS), which is the most inclusive international gathering in the field of Asian Studies. ICAS attracts participants from over 60 countries to engage in global dialogues on Asia that transcend boundaries between academic disciplines and geographic areas. Meeting place for the eleventh edition of ICAS is Leiden, the Netherlands. The historic city of Leiden is home to one of the of the oldest universities, Leiden University, and several of the most renowned Asia research centers. Leiden University will be the main host of ICAS 11, partnering with the city, research institutions and museums, who share equally rich Asian and global connections.

Events will include: panels and roundtable discussions, keynote speeches, craft exhibitions, a film and documentary festival and the second Asian Studies Book Fair. With all these activities ICAS is contributing to the decentering of Asian Studies by including more ‘Asian voices’ while successfully convening a global space in which Asia scholars and social and cultural actors from the whole world can directly interact. Participate at ICAS 11 and enjoy the multitude of networking opportunities, possibilities to share your research and to meet with publishers.
