Call for papers EurASEAA15

Paper proposals must consist of:
a paper/contribution/poster title
the name/s and email address/es of author/s
a short abstract of fewer than 300 characters
a long abstract of fewer than 250 words
Delegates may only convene one panel, although they may also make one presentation, be a discussant in one panel, and/or present a poster.

Proposals should be made in English (the language of the conference).
All proposals must be made via the online form, not by email. To propose a paper, please go to the Panels page first, browse through all the panels and decide to which panel you would like to make your contribution to. There is a ‘propose a paper’ link beneath the long abstract of each panel page; click on this proposal link to make your proposal directly to that panel.
On submission of the proposal, the proposing author (but not the co-authors) will receive an automated email confirming receipt. If you do not receive this email, please first check the Login environment – Cocoa (see toolbar above right) to see if your proposal is there. If it is, it simply means your confirmation email got spammed/lost; if it is not, you will need to re-submit, as for some reason the process was not completed. Co-authors cannot be added/removed nor can papers be withdrawn by the proposers themselves – for that, please email euraseaa(at)

PANEL: Khmer-Cham-Viet interactions 12th-13th centuries
Peter Sharrock (SOAS)
Anne-Valérie Schweyer (CNRS-UMR8170)


The eastern states of mainland Southeast Asia traversed a shadowy period of intense political and military interactions in the 12th-13th centuries, which together proved formative in the future development of the region. The Khmer kingdom, rising towards its apogee of imperial power, at times fought against, and at other times allied itself with, the loose neighbouring federation of Cham kingdoms. Their alliance, built on a political and commercial base, was directed against the Buddhist Ly dynasty of the Dai Viet polity to the north.

Recent epigraphic research, matched with analysis of Viet and Chinese annals, along with analysis of the material record of iconography and architecture found in the three states, seeks new insights into the rise and decline of the Khmers and Chams and the progress of the Viets against both the Mongols and their neighbours.
