WRITING WORKSHOP
Contemporary agrarian-environmental transformations across Southeast Asia

Rural areas of Southeast Asia are marked by rapid and widespread agrarian and environmental change. Resource extraction, hydropower development, planting of monoculture crops, forest management policies, and migration are some of the many processes that have generated deforestation, land dispossession, soil degradation, loss of rural livelihoods, and social conflict across the region. In this event we aim to reflect on these transformations by engaging closely with the writing of graduate students, researchers, and faculty who are working on these issues. Unlike a conventional workshop, which is centered on oral presentations, this workshop is focused on the process of writing. The group dynamic of the workshop is used to achieve multiple purposes: 1) to advance the writing of the participating authors and 2) to learn from the writing of the authors via a process of engaged reading, and 3) to generate new insights into agrarian-environmental transformations across Southeast Asia through close engagements among the group with the papers read and presented and the ensuing discussion.

Participating authors are those who are developing a draft paper which they seek to publish in an international peer-reviewed journal or as part of an edited volume. The workshop will benefit their work by 1) encouraging them to complete an early draft prior to journal or book deadlines and 2) providing them with insightful comments and edits that will improve their work and help them to get it published. Participating authors must circulate a draft of their paper one week before the workshop. Participating readers will read at least one paper and provide written comments and edits. They will also share those comments at the workshop.
