12 april vond een geslaagde Bakedag plaats in het Conservatorium van Amsterdam. Na de ledenvergadering was het tijd voor diverse pitches. Pieter de Rooy liet twee fragmenten uit zijn film Cultural Musicology zien, Socioloog Niels van Poecke presenteerde zijn onderzoek over New Folk Music, Bogi Nagy demonstreerde de verschillen tussen Taragota en de Saxofoon en nieuw Bakelid Olivier Schreuder vertelde over zijn bezigheden als componist/onderzoeker. Ook waren er drie Senegalese Sabarspelers die samen met danser Moussa N’Diaye een presentatie gaven over Sabar. Wil jij op de volgende Bakedag ook je onderzoek presenteren of iets pitchen? Stuur een mailtje naar!

6th Southeast Asia Update – Fri 20 June ’14

Posted on June 15, 2014. Filed under: Uncategorized |

This year’s annual Southeast Asia Update is organized by the University of Amsterdam (UvA), in cooperation with the Royal Netherlands Institute of
Southeast Asian and Caribbean Studies (KITLV), International Institute of Social History (IISG) and the International Institute for Asian Studies (IIAS).

Please register with Yayah Siegers (KITLV)
Friday 20 June 2014 | 9.30 am – 17.00 pm
International Institute of Social History (IISG) | Cruquiusweg 31 | 1019 AT Amsterdam
The Southeast Asia Update provides researchers, scholars, students and others interested in the region with a unique opportunity to:

  •  get a quick update on ongoing research in the region and new research initiatives;
  • get an overview of ongoing debates and recent research on Southeast Asia;  listen to (and get in touch with) researchers who present research ideas, ongoing projects, new findings and hot debates;
  • meet colleagues and old friends, and make new ones;
  • extend their network of Southeast Asia scholars in the Netherlands and abroad.

Throughout the Netherlands, a large number of scholars are involved in research projects dealing with Southeast Asia. Whereas those working on comparable subjects or in the same countries know each other well, the general academic exchange on Southeast Asia in The Netherlands and elsewhere remains rather limited. Therefore, the Southeast Asia Update brings researchers working on the region together on a yearly basis.

This year’s Update has again succeeded in attracting a large number of academic researchers and other professionals working on Southeast Asia, both from the Netherlands and from abroad.
