Asia-Pacific Week at the ANU will be held from 8-11 February 2010. Applications close 31 October. Tyrell Haberkorn and I will be convening the Southeast Asia group and we encourage PhD, Masters and advanced Undergraduate students to apply. It will be lots of fun!

Here are the details from the Asia Pacific Week website. Go online to apply.

Asia-Pacific Week is a conference and summer school that brings together hundreds of PhD candidates from Australia and overseas to workshop projects, benefit from master classes and form networks committed to understanding the world’s most dynamic region. … Asia Pacific Week is a container for a number of “Graduate Summer Schools” focusing on different areas of the Asia-Pacific region (the Pacific Islands, China, Japan, Indonesia, South Asia and Southeast Asia).

During a week of activities, graduate students have a chance to present their research interests, meet other students and academics, participate in a wide range of training activities, be introduced to the rich holdings on Asia and the Pacific at the ANU Library and the National Library of Australia and participate in a stimulating program of events including cross-area workshops, keynote speeches, seminars and master classes, film screenings, cultural performances and social events.

How to participate.

We provide a limited number of small grants to partially cover travel, accommodation and board while in Canberra. The number and amount can vary from program to program, but candidates who are accepted can count on room and board for the four days of Asia-Pacific Week (8-11 February) and a contribution towards their domestic travel. (Please note that no financial help is available for travel from overseas).

Undergraduate and Masters students

A small number of bursaries will be made available for advanced undergraduate students and Masters students to attend the event as observers. Bursaries will only cover accommodation
