New Perspectives in Southeast Asian Studies
New Perspectives in Southeast Asian Studies publishes academic books that focus on historical and contemporary problems in this dynamic region, from local issues through global interconnections. While the series as a whole covers cultural, economic, environmental, political, and social issues, individual titles aspire to the fine-grained research and theoretical innovation long associated with scholarship on Southeast Asia. Editorial work is a collaborative effort between the University of Wisconsin Press and the University’s Center for Southeast Asian Studies, a National Resource Center that has promoted the study of this region for forty years.
Prospective authors: Please refer to the UW Press guidelines for submitting proposals. Direct queries to UW Press Editorial Director Gwen Walker.
