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.

I recently had a talk with Professor Victor T. King about tourism and heritage in Southeast Asia.
Victor T. King is Professor of Borneo Studies at The Institute of Asian Studies, Universiti Brunei Darussalam. He is trained as a cultural anthropologist and has been researching about Southeast Asia, with an emphasis on Borneo, since the 1970s. Information about his scholarly writings on Borneo can be found here.
Victor began researching about tourism and heritage in Southeast Asia in the 1980s, and continues to research about that topic today. In this first video we talk about his interest in this topic, and his history of research, and in subsequent videos we talk more closely about some of the issues in the study of tourism and heritage in Southeast Asia.
