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.



In light of the recent announcement of the serious faculty and curriculum cuts at the Australia National University‚Äôs School of Culture, History, and Language, SEAREG is issuing this statement in support of Professor Robert Cribb and ANU’s valuable Asian studies program.


We are delighted to announce the 2016 Young Southeast Asia Fellows:
Joseph Amick, UT Austin
