In this video, Professor Victor T. King of the Institute of Asian Studies at Universiti Brunei Darussalam continues his discussion with Professor Ooi Keat Gin, an historian in the School of Humanities at Universiti Sains Malaysia. They begin by talking about “Southeast Asia: A Historical Encyclopedia, From Angkor Wat to East Timor,” a work that Ooi Keat Gin edited and published in 2004.

Their discussion then goes on to cover the (declining) state of Southeast Asian Studies in the UK and Europe in the twenty first century.
