On May 14, 2021, the Southeast Asian Studies Graduate Student Association (SEASGRAD) at the University of California, Riverside will host its second annual conference. We intend this conference to provide a platform for engaging with interdisciplinary research in Southeast Asian Studies, to create a communal space for generative dialogue and networking, and to support emerging student-scholars and artists in the field. This year’s conference will be online.
Through this year’s theme, “Making and Unmaking Southeast Asian Spaces,” we are interested in the instrumental role of space in the cultural, political, and social developments of Southeast Asian communities both within the region and across Southeast Asian diasporas. We are further interested in the ways that intellectuals, activists, and cultural producers imbue and embody spaces––expansively––for the community, coalition, and resistance.
