Venue: University of California-Berkeley
Co-Organizers: University of California-Berkeley
Program(2014/09/19 up) » Abstract » Record of Activity »
Recent research in historical sociology and anthropology has attempted to broaden the frame of Southeast Asian Studies beyond the parochiality of studies of national areas by focusing on historical connections and circulations of culture, religion and commodities within Southeast Asia and between the region and the wider world. This symposium focuses on worldly Southeast Asian networks and narratives from the period spanning the rise of modern nationalism to contemporary globalization, their ethico-political consequences and their broader implications for theorizing worldliness. There will be sessions on Southeast Asian world literature, labor migration and the relationship between nationalism and internationalism.

Record of Activity: Narrating Southeast Asian Worldliness」
The Berkeley-Kyoto Symposium was held on October 24, 2014 in the University of Calfornia-Berkeley campus. As Professor Pheng Cheah, Chair of Berkeley CSEAS noted in his welcome address, this symposium was jointly organized by UC-Berkeley’s Center for Southeast Asian Studies and Kyoto University’s CSEAS, as part of the activities covered by the Memorandum of Understanding signed by the two centers. The symposium focused on worldly Southeast Asian networks and narratives from the period spanning the rise of modern nationalism to contemporary globalization, their ethico-political consequences and their broader implications for theorizing worldliness. There were sessions on Southeast Asian world literature, labor migration and the relationship between nationalism and internationalism. A number of faculty members from the University of California system also participated, among them John D. Blanco of University of California-San Diego, Megan Thomas of the University of California-Santa Cruze, and Tamara Ho of University of California-Los Angeles. The Kyoto CSEAS team was composed of Caroline Hau and postdoctoral fellows Jafar Suryomenggolo and Lisandro Claudio. The event was attended by 42 researchers and students.
