Initiated in 1938, the ‘Verhandelingen’, or ‘VKI’, is the longest running series of monographs and edited volumes on the humanities and social sciences of Southeast Asia and especially Indonesia. So far, over 300 volumes have been published by internationally renowned scholars. The series’ publications include classics in their field as well as cutting-edge modern scholarship. Informed by theoretical debates the volumes have a strong empirical orientation, thus providing the series with a lasting relevance. Today, the editors focus on history and politics, archeology, anthropology and urban studies, media and popular culture, as well as literature and linguistics. Two sub-series, viz., Power and Place and Southeast Asia Mediated, respectively concentrating on local politics, and media and popular culture, foreground the series’ mission of exploring new topics and themes.

The first 100 volumes are available free of charge under a CC-BY-NC license.

This series is indexed in Scopus.
