Recently, a short article of mine was printed in the Asian Studies Newsletter (the quarterly publication of the Association for Asian Studies). The article is about New Mandala and much of what I write will not be news to regular readers. Nonetheless, I thought it was worth putting the article up online for anyone who is interested and particularly for those who do not have ready access to the printed form. After all it is an article about this very website.
The full article is available (as a pdf) right here. As always, I am very open to comments from readers about this article and its argument. This is certainly not the last word on academic blogging or the use of technology for the study of mainland Southeast Asia.
