The principle mission of Explorations is to offer a forum for students to present disciplinary and interdisciplinary research on a broad range of issues relating principally to the region which today constitutes Southeast Asia. Embracing both the diversity of academic interests and scholastic expertise it is hoped that this forum will introduce students to the work of their colleagues, encourage discussion both within and across disciplines, and foster a sense of community among those interested in Southeast Asia.
Recent and past editions of Explorations with unique URLs suitable for academic citation are available for download from ScholarSpace, the University of Hawaii's Institutional Repository. Individual issues can be downloaded by visiting the Explorations website.
