The latest issue of the SEALG Newsletter (2015) has been published and is now available online at http://www.sealg.org/pdf/newsletter2015.pdf .
Included in the Newsletter is the report of our group’s Annual Meeting that took place in July 2015 in Paris. This Annual Meeting was the second successful collaborative conference with the South Asia Archive and Library Group whom we owe a debt of gratitude. The theme of the conference “The French Connection – with South and Southeast Asia” gave us the opportunity to look at Southeast Asian materials from a different angle.
In addition to a detailed report from our Annual Meeting in Paris, the new issue of the Newsletter contains the following articles:
Under the Eyes of French Adventurers: Social Conditions of the Upper Mekong Region in the 1860s (Jotika Khur-Yearn, SOAS, University of London)
Archives about Indochina in the National Overseas Archives (ANOM) (Olivia Pelletier and Isabelle Dion, Centre des Archives nationales d’outre-mer (ANOM), Aix-en-Provence)
French Studies of Nusantara: A Glance from Russia (Liubov Goriaeva, Institute of Oriental Studies, Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow)
Indonesia calling! Crowdsourcing catalogue records for the British Library’s Indonesian collection (Annabel Teh Gallop, British Library, London)
