||2013 SIEAS Research Cluster Conference
||Room 109, Samsung Gabriel Hall,Sogang University
||October 31 (Thu)-November 1 (Fri), 2013
The theme of this conference is “Southeast Asia vis-a-vis the Etrangers in the Historical Perspective”, through which research cluster participants will attempt to examine idea that native Southeast Asians and foreigners identify themselves and recognize each other not only by nationality, but also by selfalienation, and that this ‘self-alienation’, between contempt and envy, led to social disturbance as well as cultural assimilation. I hope this conference will deepen our understanding of Southeast Asia as an open regional system.
