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, but it remains little known to the general public and even to most scholars of Asia. This series will raise the visibility of Southeast Asia in scholarly circles and among general readers. The series title opens a broad umbrella to cover the fields of history (memory) and culture (meanings), especially when these topics also elucidate issues of power (politics) at various social levels. The topics of books in this series might include: the politics of culture, including popular and youth cultures; the politics of religion; hegemonies and resistance; nationalism and ethnicity; states and ideologies; gender and sexuality; the family as a disciplinary regime; constructions of the past; democracy and culture; minorities and nation. Relevant translations from Southeast Asian literature might also appear in the series, and in special cases, collected conference papers.

The editors seek to publish the very best scholarship about Southeast Asia that is emerging now from various disciplines. They especially welcome manuscripts from scholars who have only recently earned their PhDs. Manuscripts selected for publication should speak to specialists, engaging with conversations and debates within the disciplines, but should also be accessible to the international community of scholars from various disciplines and to anyone seriously interested in Southeast Asia.
