Humanities, Social Sciences and the Public Sphere in 21st Century Asian Societies:Cambodia, Japan, and Malaysia

This project aims to stimulate an academic and intellectual exchange on the presence of the humanities and social sciences within Asian societies. While the humanities and social sciences are well established within Japan and Malaysia, this is not the case in Cambodia. Through study visits, intellectual exchange and a research conference, this project attempts to revitalize the presence of the humanities and social sciences within the Cambodian public sphere and sketch a roadmap for the future of the humanities and social sciences within 21st-century Asian societies.
