Center for Southeast Asian Studies


Call for papers

Undergraduate and graduate students are invited to submit papers for the Spring 2016 Southeast Asian Student Conference, set for March 26 in Room 100 Campus Life. Abstracts are due Feb. 25. University of Leeds political scientist Duncan McCargo will be the keynote speaker.

Think spring!

There's a little bit of everything on our spring 2015 Southeast Asian Studies course listings, from sacred architecture of World Heritage Sites in SEA to the history of Southeast Asia since 1800, from political anthropology and political violence to Asian American cultures and of course, gamelan! All of these courses count toward the SEAS minor and the SEAS graduate certificate. Contact Outreach Coordinator Julien Ehrenkonig if you have a question about the minor; call Assistant Director Eric Jones for more information on the certificate. You can reach both through the Center's main number, 815-753-1771.
