Announcement and Call for Papers
International Conference on "Language, Literature and Culture in ASEAN:
  Unity in Diversity"

Organized in Commemoration of the 40th Anniversary of ASEAN

Venue: Maha Chulalongkorn Building, Faculty of Arts, Chulalongkorn University,
Bangkok Thailand

Organizer: Faculty of Arts, Chulalongkorn University


Rationale:
The year 2007 marks the fortieth anniversary of the establishment of
ASEAN.  To commemorate this milestone, the ten member nations of the
organization have organized various activities under the main theme,
"One ASEAN at the Heart of a Dynamic Asia".  The celebrations
commenced in January 2007 and will continue until August 2008, which
coincides with the month of ASEAN's birth.

As one of the founding members of ASEAN, Thailand is taking part in
the celebrations, with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs as the
coordinator of assistance and collaboration from other government
agencies.  The aim is to a generate greater awareness among the public
of the significance of the role played by ASEAN, particularly in terms
of political, economic, social and cultural collaboration between the
member nations of this vital region.

Chulalongkorn University's Faculty of Arts is an institution of higher
learning that offers classes related to the languages, literature,
history and culture of the ASEAN countries.  It also serves as a
resource center for academics and specialists in topics on the ASEAN
region.  It has therefore been deemed appropriate that it lend support
to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs by organizing an international
conference on "Language, Literature  and Culture in ASEAN: Unity in
Diversity".  This conference will serve as a platform for academics
and graduate students, from within Thailand and abroad, to present
their research on topics reflecting their scholarly interests.  The
conference will not only highlight the major theme of "One ASEAN at
the Heart of a Dynamic Asia" but will also reflect the strength and
dynamism manifested in the rich and diverse culture which has been a
part of the potential of this organization during the past four
decades, a fitting finale for the year-long celebrations that have
taken place between 2007 and 2008.
