Welcome to Perspectives on the Past. We’re a research and reading group within the Sydney Southeast Asia Centre (SSEAC) at the University of Sydney, focused on new perspectives on the Southeast Asian past. Our disciplinary backgrounds are diverse: archaeology, history, oral history, heritage, performance studies, philology, art history and museology.
As editors of the Perspectives on the Past section of New Mandala, we aim to bring challenging and insightful reflections on the Southeast Asia past to our readers. You can read more about who we are and what we do here, and you can also join in the activity on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. We’d also love to read your submissions!
