CSEAS is excited to announce the release of Volume 13 of Explorations: A Graduate Student Journal of Southeast Asian Studies. Explorations is produced entirely by students, and features student work. Its mission is to provide a forum for collaboration, discussion, and community for those interested in the study of the Southeast Asian region.

Each issue of Explorations is hosted both on our website and by ScholarSpace, the University of Hawaiʻi’s repository for academic work.

Volume 13

The theme of this issue is Southeast Asia’s (Dis)integration: Re-examining approaches to the Study of Southeast Asia.

This issue of EXPLORATIONS re-examines established approaches to the study of Southeast Asia. The articles included in this issue attempt to destabilize or problematize existing notions of homogeneity/integration in light of contemporary research. In addition, a broad range of disciplines and areas of research are covered here including mystical practices in Central Java, gender representation in Myanmar, and impinging threats of the Islamic State (IS) in Southeast Asia. In raising these questions, we hope to bring alternative ways of thinking about Southeast Asia, both past and present.
