Southeast Asia meets global challenges

30th ASEAS conference : Southeast Asia meets global challenges, 05/09/2018 – 07/09/2018, Leeds

Conference themes are: Sustainable and Equitable Development; Social Change and Good Governance; Cultural Heritage and Cultural Production. The Call for Panels is now OPEN – deadline 31 January 2018. Please send proposals (max. 300 words) to Dr Janet Cochrane on

You don’t need to list all the participants in your panel at this stage, or even know who they will be – all we want is an outline of what your panel will be about. The panels will be publicised starting in February, and you (and others) can submit abstracts for papers from then on.  If you’re fairly new to academia you may be wondering how all this works, so please don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions! Just drop us an email on
