Southeast Asia: Politics, Meaning, and Memory

Perhaps no other part of the world is as historically complex and as culturally diverse as Southeast Asia. This region has played a key role in world history and will no doubt continue to do so, yet it remains little known to the general public and even to most scholars of Asia.

Southeast Asia: Politics, Meaning and Memory seeks to raise the visibility of Southeast Asia in scholarly circles and among general readers. Its broad scope covers history (memory) and culture (meanings), especially when these topics also elucidate issues of power (politics) at various social levels. In aiming to publish the very best scholarship on Southeast Asia, the editors welcome manuscripts emerging from a variety of disciplines, especially those produced by scholars who have recently earned PhDs. Manuscripts should speak to specialists and engage with conversations and debates within the disciplines, but should also be accessible to the international community of scholars and to anyone seriously interested in Southeast Asia.
