Welcome

Welcome to the UCLA Center for Southeast Asian Studies! We have been supporting the study of Southeast Asia at UCLA for more than 15 years, serving as a place to encourage the discussion and dissemination of scholarly work on this important region.

Our Center has been critical to sustaining and expanding Southeast Asian Studies at UCLA, which has now become one of the major U.S. sites for the study of this region.
