Publisher Comments:

The essays in Knowing Southeast Asian Subjects ask how the rising preponderance of scholarship from Southeast Asia is de-centering Southeast Asian area studies in the United States. The contributions address recent transformations within the field and new directions for research, pedagogy, and institutional cooperation. Contributions from the perspectives of history, anthropology, cultural studies, political theory, and libraries pose questions ranging from how a concern with postcolonial and feminist questions of identity might reorient the field to how anthropological work on civil society and Islam in Southeast Asia provides an opportunity for comparative political theorists to develop more sophisticated analytic approaches. A vision common to all the contributors is the potential of area studies to produce knowledge outside a global academic framework that presumes the privilege and even hegemony of Euro-American academic trends and scholars. Contributors are Carlo Bonura, George Dutton, Judith A. N. Henchy, Ariel Heryanto, and Celia Lowe.

Book News Annotation:

Scholars of Southeast Asia based mostly at the University of Washington-Seattle but also Los Angeles and Melbourne, argue that the field should change not by becoming more rigorously scientific, but by coming to terms with the politics, tensions, and gaps involved in producing knowledge about a particular region of the globe. They suggest that the future lies in rethinking disciplinary and regional claims to knowledge, and the emergence of new paradigms from conversation between scholars of and scholars from the region. Published in conjunction with the National University of Singapore Press. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
