MAI Seminar series

Mon@sia is a public forum that aims to critically rethink fundamental questions around why and how we study about “Asia” and go beyond the compartmentalization of the studies of “Asia” as something happening “over there”. Trans-Asia as method is an academic seminar series that aims to facilitate trans-Asian and cross-disciplinary dialogue by comparatively and collaboratively and develop new conceptualization and theorization from Asian experiences and de-Westernizing the production of knowledge. In addition, there are regular and occasional seminars organized by Centre for Southeast Asian Studies, Japanese Studies Centre, National Centre for South Asian Studies, and Centre for Malaysian Studies. For the details of those seminars, please see Calendar and Events page.
