The American Institute for Indonesian Studies (AIFIS), in collaboration with Michigan State University (MSU) Asian Studies Center, will hold the 2nd annual Conference on Indonesian Studies from June 21 - 25, 2022. The Conference celebrates the academic study of Indonesia. It seeks to expand research dissemination and collaboration on Indonesian studies by connecting Indonesian scholars with international colleagues in a bilingual and virtual format.

The 2022 AIFIS-MSU Conference on Indonesian Studies welcomes scholars with academic backgrounds and research expertise in history, culture, anthropology, sociology, language, and arts, and those advancing understandings of the ways that historical, sociocultural, economic, and political contexts shape contemporary and historical issues in Indonesia.

Conference Theme: Emerging Discourses and Collaborations in a New Age

This year's theme draws attention to the importance of transnational dialogue as we work in concert to advance research on Indonesia amidst great global challenges. The pandemic has brought heightened awareness of our global interconnections and transformed the ways in which we engage in scholarship and collaborate with each other.

The AIFIS-MSU Conference on Indonesian Studies is borne out of our process of evolving and transforming, enabling expanded ability to connect and collaborate across our geographical divide, and to engage in a range of conversations with a greater diversity of individuals, communities, and institutions. It is in this spirit of kerja sama // collaboration and discourse building that we welcome paper proposals from Indonesianists across disciplines.
