Crossings evoke the process of traversing and negotiating terrains, waters, temporalities, identities and paradigms. How do crossings challenge the boundaries of these concepts in the studies of Southeast Asia? In thinking about intersections of old and new ideas, what crossings have scholars attempted and what obstacles have they faced?
17 graduate students from America, Netherlands, Australia, Spain, Amsterdam, Indonesia, and Germany will engage these questions, presenting their work as part of a panel. Paper abstracts will be included in the conference program.
Professor Anne Blackburn from the Department of Asian Studies at Cornell will be joining us as our keynote speaker. Professor Blackburn's keynote lecture is titled: "Crossings & Formations: Making an Indian Ocean Buddhist World, 1100-1500."
