Call for Papers and Participation
Cornell-Yale Northeastern Conference on Indonesia
Saturday, October 22, 2011
Kahin Center, Cornell University
Ithaca, New York
The Cornell University Indonesian Association (CIA) and the Yale Indonesia Forum (YIF) invite you to participate in their seventh biannual Northeast conference on Indonesia. We are honored to have Professor Emeritus Benedict Anderson returning as our keynote speaker. This conference was inspired by the 80th anniversary of the Second Youth Congress, where Indonesian intellectuals from diverse cultures and language groups declared their unity with the Indonesian national identity that constitutes “one land, one people, and a unifying language of Indonesia.” The Cornell-Yale conference continues this aspiration by serving as a forum for the exchange of knowledge about today’s Indonesia with the Indonesian language as its main medium of communication. It brings together seasoned professors, and up-and-coming researchers, students from the physical and social sciences and humanities to share and learn each other’s studies, research, and novel ideas for the advancement of today’s Indonesia.
For those who would like to present, please submit an abstract and short biography, both in Bahasa Indonesia and English, to Danny Adiwibowo (dha37 at cornell dot edu) by September 24, 2011. Those who are selected must submit full papers and presentation materials by October 8, 2011. Paper presenters and moderators: please contact the 2011-2012 CIA president, Wiratama Ramanto (whr39 at cornell dot edu) for logistical details; for conference transportation from Yale, contact the YIF advisor, Indriyo Sukmono (indriyo_sukmono at yale dot edu).
