- SEASREP - Southeast Asian Studies Regional Exchange Program
|Dates:||December 08-09, 2005|
|Description:||SEASREP's 10th Anniversary Conference: Southeast Asia, A Global Crossroads|
|Location:||Chiang Mai, Thailand|
|Subject:||Organized by the SEASREP Foundation, with support from the Toyota Foundation and Japan Foundation, the conference provides an occasion for SEASREP not merely to showcase its achievements over the years, but position itself as a regional institution and network in the next decade. The conference also allows the organization to situate itself within the broader intellectual development in the region. After independence, Southeast Asian scholarship focused on the construction of the state and the development of national identities that highlighted the departure from colonial rule. By the 1980s, however, there was an increasing consciousness among intellectuals of the linkages between Southeast Asian countries, their shared interests and traditions, the existence of regions within the region, and so on. This was part of a more general move among Southeast Asian states and societies towards regional cooperation and consciousness.
