Join Zeba Salman and Lydia Pistis from the SOAS Alumni team for a special SOAS Alumni Networking event in Jakarta.

You will also hear from Dr Michael Buehler, lecturer in Comparative Politics at SOAS, who will be sharing his research on shari'a law in Indonesia. Based on several years of fieldwork in Indonesia, Dr Buehler's talk will examine the concrete mechanisms through which Islamic law has spread across the largest Muslim country in the world and draw parallels to other countries, including the diffusion of morality policies across the United States in recent decades.

This will be the first time that we will be making a visit from the SOAS Alumni team, and as we develop our plans for SOAS' centenary celebrations in 2016, it would be good to hear your ideas on how you might get involved and support our global network of 35,000 alumni worldwide.

Taking place in Singapore, we welcome SOAS alumni to join Professor Michel Hockx, Director of the SOAS China Institute, for a talk on 'Internet Literature and publishing reform in China'

Since the late 1990s, Chinese literary enthusiasts have explored new spaces for creative expression online, giving rise to a modern genre that has transformed Chinese culture and society. Ranging from the self-consciously avant-garde to the commercially popular, web-based writing has introduced innovative forms, themes, and practices into Chinese literature and its aesthetic traditions. Hockx conducted the first comprehensive survey in English of this phenomenon, and will present his findings in Chinese for the first time in this lecture. His emphasis will be on the challenges posed by online publishing to the reform of the state-regulated print publishing system, taking into account recent policy changes.

RSVP is necessary, please email chsqgh@nus.edu.sg to register your attendance.

*Please note, this talk will be in Chinese*.
