UC Berkeley-UCLA Southeast Asian Studies Conference: Migrations and New Mobilities in Southeast Asia
April 27-28, 2018
at UC Berkeley
Conference chair: Prof. Nancy Lee Peluso (Environmental Science, Policy & Management, UC Berkeley)
The aim of this conference, jointly sponsored by the Center for Southeast Asia Studies at UC Berkeley (Director: Prof. Pheng Cheah) and the Center for Southeast Asian Studies at UCLA (Director: Prof. George Dutton), is to look anew at issues concerning migration and Southeast Asia.
Migrations have characterized Southeast Asian lives and livelihoods in different ways in different eras; they have affected work, settlement patterns, resource use, small and large investments, religion, and culture. Migrations have formed and changed the composition of Southeast Asian societies and given rise to complex cultural, social, environmental, and political problems and opportunities. Past and present, migrations have been both forced and voluntary: forced to make way for certain kinds of development; triggered by violence and war; but also intentional and, at times, pioneering: to change lives, secure new livelihoods, or explore new ecologies.
The conference is open to all. Some travel funding is available for faculty and graduate students at UC and CSU campuses.
