Southeast Asian travelogues and global Asia

This laboratory considers the ways in which travelogues by Southeast Asians articulated the concept of inter-Asian connections, thus prefiguring the term ‘global Asia.’ Examples include the study of early modern India and Southeast Asia by Chinese-language Nanyang (South Seas) historians in 1950s Singapore, as reflected in their travel memoirs, as well as the Malaccan writer and translator Munsyi Abdullah’s Bahasa chronicles of his voyages to Mecca and northern Malaysia in the late nineteenth century. We are interested in papers that engage in the following topics:

Friday, March 15, 2019

Inspired by Teresia Teaiwa’s definition of “militourism” as a “phenomenon by which a military or paramilitary force ensures the running of a tourist industry, and that same tourist industry masks the military force behind it,” this panel seeks to consider practices of “militourism” in a long historical context by soliciting papers with critical approaches to militarization, travel, and tourism from antiquity to the present day. We invite papers that engage questions of conquest, colonization, and empire; battlefield/memorial tourism; memoirs by soldiers, soldiers’ wives, and support staff; the intersections of military and tourist industries.

deadline for submissions:

The long Eighteenth Century is the time when ocular-centric thought established itself in Western society. Images and illustrations permeated textual spaces to the point that few books were printed without illustrations. From arts to sciences via fiction and geographic literature, the eighteenth-century citizen was therefore exposed to wide array of visual and textual combinations as part of his/her everyday life.

This one-day symposium will be held at Mount Royal University, Calgary, Canada on March 8, 2019.

 For its 6th symposium, the Enlightenment Group welcomes 20-minute paper proposals engaging with:

-          Visual culture

-          Iconography

World religions have long held pilgrimage as an important journey of the faithful. Today, however, there is an increasing number of non-religious, secular or spiritual pilgrims undertaking these journeys. The nearly 800 km-long Camino de Santiago is a popular destination for secular pilgrims travelling through France and across Northern Spain. Established as one of three principal Christian pilgrimage routes over 1,200 years ago, the Camino is experiencing increasing visitor numbers with over 300,000 undertaking the journey each year.
