Laos in Cambridge

Call for Papers – Laos: Historical and Contemporary Transitions
26th ASEASUK Conference 2011
Magdalene College, University of Cambridge
9-11 September 2011

Laos is often regarded as the forgotten country of Southeast East Asia. Little researched, this panel seeks to bring together academics working on Laos, either in a historical and/or contemporary remit. Papers are encouraged from a broad array of interdisciplinary backgrounds that consider any form of societal transition in Laos, be it at the micro or macro scale, and concerning economic, political, social or cultural change.

Please send a title and abstract of a maximum of 300 words to Katherine.Brickell@rhul.ac.uk by June 30th 2011.  Further information about the conference is available here.
