Doing Theory in Southeast Asia website

Professors Gonzaga and Shieng are excited to share a new online resource called ‘Doing Theory in Southeast Asia’ <>.

This open-access database aims to provide a platform for students, teachers, researchers, artists, and curators to exchange critical ideas about diverse Southeast Asian cultures.

The website features a table that lists intellectual, critical, and creative works about different Southeast Asian contexts categorized according to author, medium, and field. It includes annotations about academic journals in the region. Lastly, the section ‘Archipelagic Juxtapositions’ explores emergent topics, which uncover possible connections among seemingly unrelated objects, conditions, and processes pertaining to myth, geopolitics, art, music, and the environment.

‘Doing Theory in Southeast Asia’ was supported by a Hong Kong Research Grants Council (RGC) General Research Fund (GRF), together with a Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) Faculty of Arts Direct Grant.

This project was initiated with the ethos of multiplying alternative frameworks outside dominant sites of knowledge production. It is in an early stage of development so please feel free to send us your thoughts and suggestions at
