Dear colleagues and friends of the South East Asia Library Group,
We hereby wish to invite you to our Annual General Meeting of 2023. This year we will be hosted by Christophe Caudron at Maison Asie Pacifique in the sunny city of Marseille, France, on Thursday 15 June and Friday 16 June 2023.
Please find attached the Call for papers, the invitation letter and the programme.
Everyone will be most welcome and participation will not be restricted to library or archive staff.
On Friday morning we will visit Archives d’Outre-Mer in Aix-en-Provence to see their materials related to Southeast Asia. After the thematic round table in the afternoon, we will go for a walk along the stunning blue coast of the north of Marseille and its calanques.
For those who wish to extend their stay: the region offers ample opportunity for various kinds of outings: https://www.marseille-tourisme.com/en/.
It would facilitate our planning enormously if you could let us know if you are planning to attend, and if you are planning to stay for the whole length of the Annual Meeting or only for one of the two days. A more detailed programme will be circulated soon. It will be a physical event only.
We look forward to seeing you in Marseille!
