Our second annual meeting will take place on May 3-4, 2014 at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. All participants must register by April 4, 2014 using the form at the bottom of this page.
The core intellectual activities at each meeting are five paper sessions by a class of Young Southeast Asia Fellows. The paper sessions take the form of 20 minute research presentations on completed drafts of working papers that have been pre-circulated to all attendees. These are followed by 60 minutes of comments and discussion. A preliminary schedule for the 2014 meeting may be found here.
We anticipate that meeting will attract approximately 30 scholars, all PhD students, post-docs, or current faculty. A block of rooms has been reserved at the Statler Hotel for the nights of May 2 and 3 for out-of-town guests, and detailed information about travel and accommodations is available here.
Informal group dinners (“Southeast Asian style”) will take place on Friday and Saturday. The informal meals are designed to foster networking among emerging and established scholars at various stages in their careers. There is a $75 registration fee for all workshop participants, which will cover meals as well as overhead. Please send the registration fee (in the form of a check made payable to “Cornell University”) to the following address.

NEW: TRAVEL GRANTS AVAILABLE
We are happy to announce that a grant from the Henry Luce Foundation will enable us to offer ten (10) grants of US$500 each to Ph.D. students wishing to attend the 2014 meeting. These grants may be used to subsidize travel, accommodations, registration fees, and/or incidentals for students traveling to Ithaca. Students wishing to be considered for a travel grant should send the following materials to Tom Pepinsky (lastname at cornell dot edu):
- a one-page summary of their research interests and experience
- a current CV.
Grantees will be chosen based on their scholarly promise as Southeast Asianists as well as their attendance of the previous SEAREG meeting. Applications for our Luce Foundation travel grants are due no later than April 4, 2014. Decisions will be announced soon thereafter.
