Critical Dialogues in Southeast Asian Studies

Edited by Charles F. Keyes, Professor of Anthropology and International Studies; Vicente L. Rafael, Professor of History; and Laurie J. Sears, Professor of History. All three series editors are at the University of Washington, Seattle.

These new perspectives in Southeast Asian studies reconsider traditional relationships among scholars, texts, archives, field sites, and subject matter. Volumes in the series feature inquiries into historiography, critical ethnography, colonialism and postcolonialism, nationalism and ethnicity, gender and sexuality, science and technology, politics and society, and literature, drama, and film. This scholarship sheds light on shifting contexts and contests over forms of knowing and modes of action that inform cultural politics and shape histories of modernity.
