About Volume 14

From the editorial team:

This issue of EXPLORATIONS focuses attention on the multitude of ways in which water, in all of its forms, has influenced Southeast Asian Studies. The articles featured in this volume bring water to the forefront of Southeast Asian Studies scholarship by covering issues relating to water security, maritime disputes, fishing rights, disaster preparation, river management, and maritime networks in Southeast Asia in both historical and contemporary contexts. In raising these questions, this journal seeks to expand the possibilities of using the water perspective in studying Southeast Asia.
