IAS Wednesday Seminar Series

 

Since 2012, the weekly Wednesday Seminar series organised by IAS has become a staple feature for discussion and dialogue throughout the university. Speakers from a variety of backgrounds, including UBD faculty, experts from government ministries and other government agencies, the private sector and invited speakers based regionally, are invited to present on-going research or work on Asia.

In 2016, international scholars such as Assistant Professor Goodlander (Indiana University) presented her work on Southeast Asian puppetry and tradition in IAS Wednesday Seminar Series. In 2015, Bruneian scholars were actively giving talks on a range of subjects, Literature is one of them. Dr. Kathrina bte DP Haji Mohd Daud, for instance, on 26th of August 2015 gave a presentation on National Identity in Bruneian Literature. In 2014, presentations included work ranging from the religious conversions of Filipino workers in the Arab gulf region (Dr Naomi Hosoda, Kagawa University), medical anthropology in the Malay world (Dr Saiful Islam, UBD) to Malay literature (Professor Henrik M.J. Maier, IAS), amongst others.

For inquiries regarding the seminar series, or if you are interested in presenting a seminar as part of the series, please contact  bruno.jetin@ubd.edu.bn or mizanur.rahman@ubd.edu.bn.
