This book offers a view from Southeast Asia, where oral history is embryonic and state led but is also being socially contested and redefined. The book began as a conference in Singapore in 2010, organized by the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies (ISEAS) and the Singapore Heritage Society. ISEAS had hosted a similar event 20 years ago, which resulted in the publication Oral History in Southeast Asia: Theory and Method (1998). The interim years have witnessed significant changes in Southeast Asia that are transforming the practice of oral history.
