Description:

Interdisciplinary Symposium on the Southeast Asian Environment.

As a major center of global biodiversity and natural resources, Southeast Asia's environment sustains life but also poses challenges. This symposium explores the Southeast Asian environment from several disciplinary approaches in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. Presenters in the first session address Southeast Asian biodiversity through the lenses of conservation biology, literature, and taxonomy. In the second session, presenters address the social corollaries of that biodiversity, commenting on justice in biodiversity governance regimes in Laos, transmigration programs in Indonesia, and the politics of forest fires in Borneo.
