DescriptionHighly competitive research seminar organized by the National University of Singapore. For more than a decade, the SSRC InterAsia Program, working with a larger network of InterAsian partners, has supported innovative research that challenges the territorial fixities of area-studies research without discounting the importance of contextually grounded, place-based knowledge. Program activities have strengthened the understanding of issues and geographies that do not fit neatly into existing divisions of academia or the world, and have created new approaches, practices and opportunities for transregional studies.
The InterAsia Academy—aimed at advanced graduate students and early-career researchers—will build upon this work through an explicit focus on pedagogy, specifically examining the broad theme of "Integration and Disintegration in InterAsian Perspective." This theme highlights processes of regionalization and re-regionalization that crosses national and other boundaries, building on old histories and creating new geographies. It examines the ways in which interconnected formations across the Asian expanse shape and reshape ecologies, economies and everyday life.
