Methodology and Research Practice in Southeast Asian Studies ed. by Mikko Huotari, Jürgen Rüland and Judith Schlehe (review)

Edited by Mikko Huotari, Jürgen Rüland and Judith Schlehe. Houndsmills, UK: Palgrave Macmillan, 2014. Hardcover: 334pp. Over the past decade, the discipline of Southeast Asian Studies has grappled with the tension — real or perceived — between universalistic disciplinary knowledge and area-specific inter-disciplinary knowledge production. What is the function and future of area studies, and Southeast Asian Studies in particular, in the process of knowledge accumulation? Is it a coherent research method, research agenda or simply a scholarly identity? Is it still relevant and useful as a field of studies and/or an institutional foundation? If so, how can scholars and students of Southeast Asian Studies come to terms with, and reconcile, this tension in order to make a contribution to knowledge accumulation and dissemination that is more broadly relevant? In particular, are there any practical methodologies that area experts could deploy to generate “context-sensitive practices of social science knowledge”? (p. 1) What do these methods look like?
