Southeast Asia Council (SEAC)
Southeast Asian Studies Association at Ohio University
Southeast Asian studies SEAS refers to research and education on the language , culture, and history of the different states and ethnic groups of Southeast Asia. Definitions of what constitutes Southeast Asia differ between scholars, which blurs the boundaries between Southeast Asian studies and other regional studies like Oriental studies and post-colonial studies. Southeast Asian studies incorporates anthropology, religious studies, linguistics, and international relations. The boundaries of Southeast Asia are contested due to historical, cultural, and linguistic similarities between some groups in Southeast Asia and neighboring regions like India and China. While the term "Southeast Asia" was first used in connection with the present region by American priest and educator Howard Malcom in , the region presently referred to as Southeast Asia was split between India and the Far East by anglophone scholars prior to the Second World War and de-emphasized as an area of study due to the presence of national interests in the region. Immediately after the conclusion of the Second World War, the beginnings of the Cold War drew the attention of United States think tanks and intelligence organizations away from Southeast Asia.
