Symposium on Social Science 2020
(SOSS 2020): Rethinking the Social World in 21st Century
The Symposium on Social Science (SOSS) is a biennial international event in the field of social science organized by the Center for Southeast Asian Social Studies (CESASS), Universitas Gadjah Mada. The theme of the 2nd symposium is ‘Rethinking the Social World in the 21st Century.’ It addresses changes that information technology has brought about to the society. It has not only redefined the way in which we interact with one another, but it also changed the nature of power within society. Amid these changes, social sciences face a very serious challenge. Unless they take the changes into account by addressing these issues or adjust their understanding of the world they are focusing on, the future of social sciences is rather bleak. The symposium, therefore, would take this challenge seriously to make social sciences relevant despite the changes.
The Center for Southeast Asian Social Studies (CESASS) Gadjah Mada University held an “Academic Writing” class for the interns on Thursday (02/27/2020) at the CESASS Library. As an academic-based institution, CESASS invites student interns to participate in learning the world of scientific writing.

Starting with an experience sharing session, Ita told the audiences that she had been in the writing world for a long time, starting with her love of writing. “Writing is a place to shed ideas and when writing I feel free,” she said.
