Summer Course Program “(Re)constructing Southeast Asia: The Narrative of ASEAN Identity”
Calling out international & local students, lecturers, researchers, and professionals!
Southeast Asia is not a mere geographical space with a passive role in the international arena. Instead, the region has continued to be an active agent to engage in the international discourse that covers the political, economic, social, and cultural dynamics, as well as security issues. However, the level of interest and number of studies conducted by academics regarding Southeast Asia are mostly developed outside the region. Center for Southeast Asian Social Studies (CESASS) Universitas Gadjah Mada has initiated organising yearly workshops on “Teaching & Researching Southeast Asia” (MMAT) since 2014. Starting in 2021, it is held as a Summer Course, allowing not only the participation of students, but also researchers and lecturers, enabling them to broaden their perspective on Southeast Asia region. This year, MMAT Summer Course 2022 is focused on the “Narrative of ASEAN identity”.
