Our research

Researchers

The cornerstone of the Sydney Southeast Asia Centre is our research excellence. Scholars working on Southeast Asia specialise in an extraordinary range of disciplines across the spectrum, from history to law and political science, and from agriculture to medicine and veterinary science.

The breadth of disciplinary focus is matched by the spectrum of research topics studied at Sydney, which range from human rights and social movements to health and natural resource management, to linguistics and literature, among others.

SSEAC supports research about Southeast Asia across the University in a number of ways. They include:

  • showcasing University of Sydney academics’ work in the region
  • supporting disciplinary experts with an interest in Southeast Asia
  • bringing academics and practitioners together to generate new research opportunities.
