2020 Annual Conference on Taiwan’s Southeast Asian Studies

In-Depth Reflection upon Border-Crossing:
Past, Present and Future

Academia Sinica, Taiwan
June 11-12, 2020

We are very pleased to announce that the Center for Asia-Pacific Area Studies (CAPAS), RCHSS, Academia Sinica is hosting the 2020 Annual Conference on Taiwan’s Southeast Asian Studies. When hosting the same conference in 2014, we used “trans-border circulation” as the conference theme, stressing the longue durée of Southeast Asian history characterized by hybridity, fluidity and creativity. For the 2020 conference six years later, CAPAS is calling for papers that broadly address a similar theme of “in-depth reflection upon border-crossing,” considering the theme’s embracing capacity and connectivity that can highlight the area’s manifold phenomena. Moreover, it alludes to the current situation whirling in an ongoing process of change and transition, which is powerfully affecting every domain of lives, human and non-human worldwide, with unprecedented speed. Under the veneer of innovative technology, multi-national exchanges and negotiations and active civil movements, we are mired in deep crises and anxiety. This has compelled us, the academics, to look into the intricate course of multitudinous, intersecting causes and effects and perplexing power relations, in the hope of coming up with thoughtful reflections and good theories.

In the face of accelerating disparities and unevenness in the development of global capitalism, we are witnessing and experiencing numerous acts and counter-acts pertaining to all kinds of border-crossing—not only at the borderline separating two sovereign entities, but also through a wide range of socio-economic and ecological practices and decisions that occur in multiple locations within and beyond the sovereign territories. The world is congested with “frictions.” For the conference we encourage diverse exploration on issues relating to trans-border movement of “things” (human and non-human), institutions, cultural habitus, and other types of phenomena. We look forward to your participation.
