Southeast Asia stands at the crossroads of world civilizations and their contemporary transformations triggered by the globalization process. Both the source of migrations and the recipient of cultures from Asia, the Middle East, and beyond, the region has fashioned out of the interplay its diasporic communities, its indigenous peoples and the historical forces of colonialism, postcolonialism, nationalism, and transnationalism, new forms of identity, collective and individual, secular and religious. This book shows how, through the application of the methods of cultural studies, fresh readings of Southeast Asian societies can be undertaken, readings that not only reveal fresh facets of the complexity and fascination of the region, but also place it back at the centre of current theoretical debates in the social sciences and Asian studies.
