Critical Island Studies: The Islandic, Archipelagic, and Oceanic

September 26, 2019

The International Conference on Critical Island Studies is the inaugural conference of an inter-institutional organization that aims to promote and develop critical and comparative island studies of Southeast Asia, in particular, and the Asia-Pacific, in general. With Ateneo de Manila University (ADMU) and University of Santo Tomas (UST) as hosts, the first conference will be held in the Philippines. The First International Conference on Critical Island Studies will be on November 27 (UST) and  November 28 and 29, 2019 (ADMU).

The conference explores established and emerging issues, theories, methodologies, and practices in critical island studies. Focusing on concepts of the islandic, archipelagic, and oceanic, the conference accounts for the interdisciplinary historical formation, while examining its manifold scholarly and creative practices and possibilities within and across Asia. The conference will be of interest to researchers and practitioners in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences; topics include, but are not limited to, islandscapes, seascapes, and littorals; borders and contact zones; international, national, imperial, regional, cultural and language formations; and bio- and cultural diversity.

To register, fill out the form and complete the payment process. Walk-in attendees may not be accommodated once the maximum capacity of the venue is reached.
