Cornell Indonesian Association invites the submission of abstracts for the 9th Northeast Conference on Indonesia hosted jointly with the Yale Indonesian Forum.
We welcome abstracts for oral presentation on Indonesian studies for these four areas of study:
1. Science and Technology
2. Sociology, Anthropology and History
3. Economics and Politics
4. Language, Arts, Culture and Religion
Abstracts should be submitted in English and should be no more than 500 words. Authors may submit no more than one individual and one joint (co-authored) abstract. All abstracts will be submitted to blind peer reviews by a committee of graduate students of the areas of study. To submit an abstract, please send it in a PDF file to: firstname.lastname@example.org with the title of your paper as the name of the file. The abstract should not include the author’s name and affiliation.
Abstracts are due by September 9, 2012, with notification of acceptance by September 16, 2012.
Each presenter will have 20 minutes for presentation and 10 minutes for question and answer session. Presentation can be in English or Indonesian but not both of them. Should you decide to present in English, you should support your presentation with a PowerPoint display in Indonesian. Similarly, a presentation in Indonesian should be accompanied by an English PowerPoint display. This is done to promote the use of Indonesian for academic purposes.
There will be pre-conference activities featuring a photo exhibition and a documentary movie on Eka Hindrati’s 12 years of research on Indonesian forced prostitutes during the Japanese Occupation (jugun ianfu) on Friday, October 12, 2012.
