This “Multiple Marginalities” conference is the first event being held by the Association for Asian Studies under the “Cultivating the Humanities and Social Sciences and Supporting Under-Represented Scholars of Asia” project, with the support of the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA). This symposium will bring together research and institutional partners from Thailand, India, Pakistan, and Cambodia in a unique opportunity for these partners from the Global South to meet and learn from each other and create new “networks of networks” that emphasize lateral connectivity, exchange, and partnerships going into the future.

The Association for Asian Studies (AAS) is a scholarly, non-political, non-profit professional association open to all persons interested in Asia and the study of Asia. With approximately 5,500 members worldwide, representing all the regions and countries of Asia and all academic disciplines, the AAS is the largest organization of its kind.
