Research in Southeast Asian History October 19, 2013 Keynote speakers: Michael Laffan Professor of History, Princeton University Mark P. Bradley Bernadotte E. Schmitt Professor of International History and the College University of Chicago In recent years, historians of Southeast Asia have renewed attention to the dynamic and fluid nature of the region, engaging with historical movements that extend beyond the national frame. Contesting the rigid interpretation of societies and states as self-contained entities, this interest in transnational and cross-border issues has provided a critical Southeast Asian perspective to international and global history. In turn, recent scholarship in the areas of migration, diasporas, culture, language, law, commerce, technology, security, and diplomacy have helped illuminate local histories within the region. This one-day conference will bring together current graduate researchers to identify common questions, current challenges, and new approaches to the history of Southeast Asia. Papers from all time periods and across all of Southeast Asia were solicited. Papers exploring transnational themes and methodologies were especially encouraged. 8:00 A.M. – 6:00 P.M. The International Room, Sterling Memorial Library, 120 High Street, New Haven Free and open to the community For information, conference program and speaker abstracts see http://www.yale.edu/seas/SEAHistoryConf Sponsored by the Council on Southeast Asia Studies, and International Security Studies Yale University --
