Twenty-Eighth Annual Hans Rausing Lecture

Southeast Asian societies over the longue durée were characterised by the co-construction of technology and the shifting patterns of social and political interconnection.

The same technologies used to achieve everyday, practical goals also worked to reinforce or disrupt social solidarity, define or challenge social hierarchies, and inform relations of conflict or cooperation with distant peoples.

As a destination that consistently attracted migrants, traders, entrepreneurs and aspiring colonizers, its characteristic forms of technological dynamism served the political, social and economic ambitions of peoples from China to the Indian Ocean world and from the Middle East to Europe. It is thus also a story of changing global interdependencies, seen from the technological ground of Southeast Asia.
