IIAS Report: The 'Framing Asian Studies' conference, and its framing
How is our knowledge about Asia framed by the geopolitical contexts in which it is found - and how is it produced and disseminated? Which roles do the various knowledge institutions (e.g., foundations, associations, institutes, publishers and archives) play in promoting and directing Asian Studies? And what sorts of power relations can be identified, and critically reflected upon? IIAS, in partnership with the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies (ISEAS) in Singapore, organized the conference, Framing Asian Studies: Geopolitics, Institutions and Networks, to address these questions (18-20 November 2013).
