PANELS

The conference ran for two days and consisted of four to five simultaneous panels per day for a total of 33 panels. The topics of the conference papers varied and the panels were classified into two broad categories:

  • Southeast Asia as an ancient and continuing global crossroads: early migrations, borders, ports, trade; and
  • Southeast Asia as its own entity: cultures, ethnicity, nation-formation, economic development.

As for the composition of panels, there were three types:

  • Panels comprised by SEASREP “alumni” of postgraduate study and regional collaboration grants;
  • Panels organized by SEASREP affiliates, mostly former members of the Selection Committee, who were invited to conceptualize panel themes of their choice; and
  • Open panels formed by interested Southeast Asianists from the region, and other parts of Asia.

Each panel consisted of three to five papers for a session of 1 hour and 45 minutes. The paper readers were asked to speak for about 15 to 20 minutes. Extra time was allotted to the open forum.
