Sydney University to revamp its program of studies on Southeast Asia

Writing in The Australian (May 15, 2012) Bernard Lane reports that, over the next few months, Sydney University plans to develop a new centre for Southeast Asian studies. Bringing together the university’s 179 academics with Southeast Asia expertise, the new centre will concentrate on cross-disciplinary projects with a focus on big, practical issues such as infectious diseases, emergency management or regional economic integration. In the field of Southeast Asian language studies, the centre will “look at programs with more time spent studying in-country.”
