Object-Based Learning Workshop for Postgraduates

In response to popular demand!
Join us to explore Southeast Asia at the Chau Chak Wing Museum.

Who: Higher Degree by Research students with interests in Southeast Asia at the University of Sydney
When: Friday 30 April 2021, 2-4pm
Where: Chau Chak Wing Museum

Southeast Asia remains as vibrant, important and engaging as ever, and we are keen to share our passion for this region with postgraduate students from across the University. Recognising that international travel remains heavily restricted, the Sydney Southeast Asia Centre has partnered with the University’s new Chau Chak Wing Museum to bring Southeast Asia to you.

Using the Museum’s rich and varied collections, and working inside the Museum itself, we invite you to join us for a special object-based learning workshop just for University of Sydney postgraduate students. The workshop will provide a unique opportunity to come together as a community of researchers, as well as a behind-the-scenes look at the Chau Chak Wing Museum’s collections and facilities.

What’s in it for me?

  • In-depth object-based learning about Southeast Asia
  • Meet new students from across the University
  • Gain an understanding of different disciplinary approaches to the Museum’s collections.  

Only a restricted number of places are available so make sure to lodge your application early! (Groups will be limited to a maximum of 40 participants.)
