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 will be able to make available small travel grants for graduate students traveling to Chicago for the 2015 meeting.


The third annual meeting of the Southeast Asia Research Group will be held on April 24-25, 2015 at the University of Chicago. It will feature presentations by the third class of Young Southeast Asia Fellows.
