Rivers and deltas at The Tam Đảo Days 2017

Every year “The Tam Đảo Days” (JTD), an event which take the form of a summer university, provide training in social science analysis methodologies – geography, economics, statistics, socio-anthropology, history, etc. – to nearly a hundred participants from Southeast Asia (students, professors, researchers, civil servants, development agents).

This year, the JTD are being held from 7 to 15 July at the University of Can Tho (Can Tho, Vietnam). This year the programme is built around the theme “The rivers and deltas of Southeast Asia”. The synthesis of the two days of introductory plenary sessions will be drafted by Pascal Bourdeaux, a historian and associate professor at EPHE, and member of the IFGR Rivers Committee.

Switching between plenary sessions, workshops and field surveys, the JTD will take a cross-disciplinary approach to the stakes linked to the fluvial and deltaic nature of various Southeast Asian regions, by exploring in detail social science methodological approaches on the basis of practical cases.
