The Southeast Asia Research Group (SEAREG) was established in 2013 to highlight the best new research by young social scientists working on Southeast Asian politics, and to establish a network of scholars in political science and allied disciplines who are working at the forefront of Southeast Asian studies in North America. The conveners of SEAREG are committed to a model of Southeast Asian social sciences that emphasizes the complementarity of discipline, method, and area knowledge.


The conveners of SEAREG are delighted to announce a partnership with the Henry Luce Foundation. Thanks to their generous support, we are also able to make available small travel grants for graduate students traveling to Cornell for the 2014 meeting.


The second annual meeting of the Southeast Asia Research Group will be held on May 3-4, 2014 at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. It will feature presentations by the second class of Young Southeast Asia Fellows as well as a keynote lecture by R. William Liddle of Ohio State University.
