Cornell Southeast Asia Program

Cornell Southeast Asia Program Southeast Asia Studies, National Resource Center, SEAP The Southeast Asia Program (SEAP) was founded in 1950 to promote the acquisition and dissemination of knowledge about countries, cultures and languages of the region.
(12)

Its twenty core and eight emeritus faculty members have collective knowledge of Southeast Asia, which amounts to one of the world’s greatest concentrations of expertise on this region. Six language lecturers teach 4 levels of study in Burmese, Indonesian, Khmer, Tagalog, Thai, and Vietnamese. The U. S. Department of Education has continuously (without interruption since 1958) recognized SEAP as a Title VI National Resource Center. As such, it trains experts on the region and strives to meet strategic national needs in government, business, science and professional fields, as well as provides K-16 Outreach. SEAP has three unique resources: the John M. Echols Collection on Southeast Asia, the George McT. Kahin Center for Advanced Research on Southeast Asia, and SEAP Publications. The first is the largest collection on the region (over 500,000 monographs in 162 indigenous languages). The Kahin Center is an academic home to SEAP graduate students, visiting fellows and scholars, faculty members and SEAP's Publication and Outreach offices. SEAP publishes Southeast Asian monographs and language textbooks, including the only journal exclusively on Indonesia. It also makes downloads of its Cornell Modern Indonesia Project (CMIP) and SEAP Data papers accessible gratis.

Confronting Anti-Asian Bias: Interactive Teach-in

Fri. May 7 at 12-2pm EDT
Global Cornell

Join us for an interactive teach-in and listen-in on the history and experience of anti-Asian racism in the United States and at Cornell University.

In the first hour, perspectives and presentations from Cornell students, staff and faculty will highlight the long history of anti-Asian racism in the United States as well as the diversity of experiences at Cornell. Participants will hear about the connections and divisions under the very broad labels of “Asian” and “Asian American” and explore ways to speak across these differences.

In the second hour, participants will meet in small breakout groups to freely express their views and generate concrete ideas in an anonymous setting (zoom profiles will be anonymized). These breakout rooms are an opportunity to set the agenda for further related programming on campus during the next academic year and beyond.

Dara Rasami and the Making of Modern Thailand – Book Talk

In case you missed Dr. Leslie Woodhouse discuss her new book Woman between Two Kingdoms: Dara Rasami and the Making of Modern Thailand, watch the recording at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H1QqGfZjojk&feature=youtu.be

This event was hosted by the CSEAS at UC Berkeley and co-sponsored by SEAP Publications.

This talk explored how a northern Thai consort named Dara Rasami played a critical role in Siam’s effort to emulate a European-style “hierarchy of civilizations” in building a modern nation-state. The trajectory of Dara’s 24-year career as an ethnic outsider within the rarefied space of the Siamese Inner Palace illuminates both Siam’s crypto-colonial strategies to assimilate regional elites, and women’s importance to Thai political history.

WEBINAR: “Southern Effects: Kaiju, Cultural Intimacy, and the Production of Distribution” by Joshua Neves

Thurs. April 29 at 4:30-6:00pm
Cornell EastAsia+ Initiative, funded by Cornell University’s Society for the Humanities.

Joshua Neves, Associate Professor and Director of the Global Emergent Media (GEM) Lab at Concordia University (Montréal).

Dr. Neves writes: This talk examines the relationship between special effects and Asia or the South—what I am calling southern effects. It has two major lines of inquiry. The first focuses on cultural circulation. It begins with monstrous and magical cinematic histories before tracing the recent effects of these southern trajectories. Secondly, it explores the role of technological-economic distribution as a form of production. Special effects are now central to Asian media, shaping not only their relationship to global markets but emergent popular geographies. The link between these two global modalities—one obtaining from imperial legacies, the other, from the economic-cultural “rise” of Asia, focuses our attention on special effects as a key node of the global-popular. Tracing a particular genealogy of special effects in Asia, the talk will move from King Kong (1933) and Godzilla (1954) to the 2013 Chinese-Korean blockbuster Mr. Go (Kim Yong-hwa, 2013) and the 2021 release of King Kong vs. Godzilla, among others.

Beyond Essentialism: Elevating Women’s Scholarship in Southeast Asian Social Sciences
Call for Papers, Workshop

Deadline: May 14, 2021

“Beyond Essentialism” provides training and mentoring of women early career researchers (ECRs) in the social sciences, with a focus on researchers from and working on Southeast Asia. Three interrelated activities form the basis for the program: 1) a virtual workshop where ECRs present early drafts of their work and receive feedback and guidance from journal editors and established scholars; 2) a physical workshop where the ECRs present revised drafts of their work and receive feedback and guidance from established scholars and peers; and 3) guided discussion during the workshops on research contexts, writing and publishing, and grant funding. By the conclusion of the workshops, each participant will have: 1) a piece of research ready to be submitted to a high level journal, 2) improved writing and reviewing skills, and 3) new and stronger networks with other ECRs in Southeast Asia, established researchers and journal editors specializing in Southeast Asian social science research.

The first workshop will be held on June 27-30, 2021 in partnership with the University of Essex, while the second workshop will be held on September 13-15, 2021 in partnership with the University of the Philippines-Diliman. Convening both workshops will be Aries Arugay (University of the Philippines-Diliman) and Sarah Shair-Rosenfield (University of Essex). The convenors will cover participation costs (including airfare, lodging, and materials) for up to 16 qualified ECR applicants. The working language of the program is English.

To submit an application, please fill out the application form completely by the deadline of Friday, May 14, 2021. Make sure you answer all questions fully, attach your manuscript or research project as a PDF or Word file, and provide the name and email contact information for your reference. When we contact them, your reference will not be asked to evaluate your scholarship but instead will be asked to confirm your academic status (e.g. ABD and expected defense date, PhD viva completed, PhD within the past 5 years). If you have any questions about whether you meet the criteria to apply, please email the convenors at [email protected].

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS Journal of Burma Studies Special Issue: Gender and Social Change in Myanmar From the Civil Disobedience Movements following the 1 February 2021 coup in Myanmar, we can see people of all gender identities at the forefront of the protests, demanding political change. Women have weaponized a taboo about me********on and pollution, using their skirts as protest banners or sticking menstrual pads to images of General Min Aung Hlaing. Amidst massive protests and international scorn, the Tatmadaw nonetheless staged its armed forces day parade, with columns of soldiers in formation and aggressive displays of military weaponry and martial masculinity. In this contemporary crossroads, the Journal of Burma Studies calls for article submissions related to gender and social change in Myanmar. This can include — but is not limited to — current or historical social movements and politics, related gender issues within those movements, specific gender-focussed political movements, as well as studies of gender inequities, disparities and phenomena that have a specific gender component, or uses a gendered lens to understand a social issue or cultural phenomenon. We welcome research related to any ethnic nationality, as well as dynamics between local populations and international discourses about Myanmar, gatekeepers or business interests. Furthermore, in considering an inclusive gendered lens for thinking about social change, we welcome research studies that operationalise theories and data regarding femininity, masculinity, and transgender identities. The Journal would especially like to reach out to Students and Junior Scholars to consider submitting their research to this issue. From the generosity of the Burma Studies Foundation, we have secured limited funds to assist in the editing of research papers authored by individuals for whom English is not their first language. Abstracts should be a maximum of 250 words, and sent as email attachment in .doc or .docx format. Include on the same page of your abstract your name (or a pseudonym), affiliation and preferred email address. Please also write “Journal of Burma Studies Special Issue: Gender and Social Change” in the title of your email. Abstracts due: 30 May 2021 Please send your abstracts (and address any questions) to [email protected]

Wonderful event next week on the intersection on law and religion in South/East Asia. https://bostonu.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_1jossxvwSY2uwsWRAkeSTw Abstract: Scholarship on nineteenth- and twentieth-century Asia frequently stresses the defining importance of colonialism on the practice and conception of religious law. Colonial legal ideas and agents, the argument goes, tended to transform the normative systems of colonised peoples from fluid and pluralistic sets of practices to codified, stabilised, rationalised systems, which Europeans could easily identify as “law.” In this short talk, I want to question this scholarly narrative as it relates to one form of religious law that has been largely overlooked by scholars to date: Buddhist law in Sri Lanka/Ceylon. Drawing on a collection of neglected monastic legal manuscripts and pamphlets in Sinhala and Pāli as well as colonial legal archives, I hope to tell another story about the changes and developments in Buddhist legal practice during the nineteenth century, one framed by dynamics of what I call inter-legal mimesis. The talk will be informal and will present new research that I’m currently working through, with the hope of encouraging discussion and soliciting your feedback. I also hope to give a brief overview of the book project as a whole. Bio: Benjamin Schonthal is Professor of Buddhism and Asian Religions and co-Director of the Otago Centre for Law and Society at the University of Otago, in Aotearoa/New Zealand. Ben received his Ph.D. from the University of Chicago and has held visiting positions at Northwestern University, the Institute for Advanced Studies (Bielefeld) and the Law School at the University of Chicago. Ben's research examines the intersections of religion, law and politics in South and Southeast Asia. He is the author of Buddhism, Politics and the Limits of Law (Cambridge University Press 2016) and a variety of scholarly articles. He has received University awards for both Distinction in Research and Excellence in Teaching. His current research project, Law's Karma, supported by the Royal Society of New Zealand, examines the politics and practice of Buddhist law in Southern Asia. With Tom Ginsburg, he is also working on a project on Buddhism and Constitutional Law, with support from the National Science Foundation. Discussant: Thomas Borchert is Professor of Religion at the University of Vermont. He received his PhD in History of Religions at the University of Chicago in 2006, and is the author of Educating Monks: Minority Buddhism on China’s Southwest Border (Hawai’i, 2017) and the editor of Theravada Buddhism in Colonial Contexts (Routledge, 2018). His current research is focused on monasticism, governance and citizenship within Thai monastic communities
