The postcolonial turn and numerous calls to rethink, to reinvent and to decenter Southeast Asian studies (Craig & McVey 1998, Heryanto 2002), rather to abandon it altogether, have yielded strong theore tical scholarship which have opened fruitful new paths of enquiry (Goh Beng -Lan 2010, Houben 2010, Hau & Tenjapira 2011). While the current dynami cs of Southeast Asian studies\nshow that it has epistemologically changed – knowledge is not anymore produced exclusively in former imperial centers, research interests have moved toward the margins, and transregional studies continue to show the inefficiency of spatial containers – the reasons of i ts existence remain questioned. The panel aims to continue the discussion o n the present state of our studies focusing on its teaching, a point largel y left aside in previous debates where the aim of knowledge transmission wi thin or outside the region – for what are we teaching ? – has been dis cussed very little. While teaching is directly linked to research on the re gion, and influenced by the epistemological changes aforementioned, its imp act\nexceed the boundaries of the academic world. In each promotion, beside s the few future academicians who will carry one research, a large part of students who will work with or within the region will be school teachers, r esearchers in think tanks, diplomats but also worker in international organ izations or companies. The question of their training is essential as it wi ll partly condition the ‘relation’ they will build with Southeast Asia. As teaching does not only depends on shifts in research paradigms, but is infl uenced by many other factors, the panel will cross experiences from differe nt contexts, with different\ncommunities, and invite contributions which wi ll deal, among others, with the way students from Southeast Asian origin, o r descent, influence the development of those studies; how the declining st atus of humanities, and the structural changes within universities, have or could influence curriculum in Southeast Asian studies; and the consequence it would have on the studies in general.
