The Center for Southeast Asia Studies at UC Berkeley and the Center for Southeast Asian Studies at UCLA have announced a Call for Papers for their joint conference on the theme Ethnic and Community Identity in Southeast Asia, to be held April 24-25, 2020, at UCLA.
Possible paper topics might touch on any of the following: state ethnic labeling policies and their implications; contestation centered on competing ethnic identities and terminologies; identities or communities formulated in terms of gender or sexual orientation; identities defined in terms of religious affiliation or organizations; academic, state, or public discourse surrounding racial or ethnic identities; ethnic or identity politics that cross national boundaries and complicate state narratives.
The two centers invite submissions for presentations from scholars and graduate students conducting original research in the social sciences and humanities that address the primary theme of the conference. Abstracts (up to 500 words) should be emailed to UCLA CSEAS (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Monday, January 20, 2020. Abstracts should also include your name, affiliation and discipline and contact information (including e-mail address).
