The third lecture in this series is "Southeast Asian Scripts: From the Centers to the Margins." This lecture focuses on two distinct but related writing traditions in Southeast Asia: those at centers of power and those at the margins. Looking at centers, the lecture examines religious manuscript production such as Indonesian texts. For the margins, the focus will be on Zomia—a geographically and culturally peripheral area corresponding to the uplands of mainland Southeast Asia—where writing and resistance to centralizing states will be among the themes discussed. The lecture will also cover the cultural, social, psychological, historical, geographical, and spiritual aspects of writing.
