Anthropology in Southeast Asia

Anthropology is the study of human societies and culture.

Archaeology also studies human societies and culture, but focuses on material remains left behind by people in the past. In the North American tradition, archaeology is one of the four sub-fields of anthropology (the others being physical anthropology, cultural anthropology, linguistics), while elsewhere, archaeology is a seperate field. For the purposes of this website, anthropology refers to the non-archaeological aspects of anthropology in Southeast Asia, including intangible cultural heritage, indigenous peoples and linguistics.

The news reports indexed below usually link to external sites that were active at the time of posting; sometimes websites may be temporarily down or may have reorganised their underlying architecture or have even closed down – in these cases the links may not be available. Most of the news articles archived are in English, although when I am made aware of stories in this and other languages I try to index them.
