The Center for Southeast Asian Studies (CSEAS) at the American University of Phnom Penh (AUPP) is pleased to announce its inclusion in the Consortium for Southeast Asian Studies in Asia (SEASIA). CSEAS’s addition to the Consortium is an important step in strengthening CSEAS’ research-focused mission and a reflection of the calibre of scholarship supported at AUPP. Although still a young university, AUPP is honored to be included among long-standing and prestigious institutions in Asia, such as Kyoto University (Japan), Chulalongkorn University (Thailand), and National University of Singapore, among others.
The Consortium will hold the 4th SEASIA Biennial Conference in Jakarta, Indonesia, on 9-11 June 2022. Focusing on the theme ‘Managing Disruption, Developing Resilience for A Better Southeast Asia’, the conference will convene scholars from throughout the region to examine how Southeast Asia can emerge stronger and better in a post-pandemic world. Like the Consortium, the conference is cross-disciplinary and will include topics relevant to economics, politics, the social sciences, and arts and humanities.
Created in 2017, the Center for Southeast Asian Studies at the American University of Phnom Penh aims to be a center of excellence in promoting Southeast Asian studies through research, teaching, immersion, and exchange. SEASIA would be a tremendous chance for stepping up and contributing to Cambodia’s Human Resources Development. The Consortium for Southeast Asian Studies in Asia (SEASIA, pronounced “see-Asia”) was established in 2013 by 10 of the leading area studies institutions in Northeast and Southeast Asia. CSEAS works with scholarly institutions around the world in advancing the Consortium’s mandate of linking the leading area studies institutions in the region through academic meetings, seminars, workshops, and symposia.
