The past fifteen years, since the demise of the New Order regime in 1998, have witnessed a significant emergence of new perspectives on the study of the Chinese in Indonesia. The major objectives of this conference are to challenge the ways people study and write about the Chinese in Indonesia and re-examine the studies of Chinese Indonesian community in light of the tremendous changes that affect this community.

Papers can be written and presented in Indonesian, Mandarin or English (there will be three separate tracks based on language of presentation). Deadline for abstract submission: July 31, 2013. Email: ccis@petra.ac.id. There will be an optional study tour to the town of Lasem, believed to be an early site for Chinese settlement in Java. The town has preserved traditional Chinese architecture and traditions. See the full CFP on the CCIS website ccis.petra.ac.id/index.php/kegiatan/22-call-for-paper-english.
