About this Journal
- Southeast of Now: Directions in Contemporary and Modern Art in Asia
Southeast of Now is a scholarly journal on art and visual culture, published online and in print twice yearly by NUS Press, National University of Singapore. The journal aims to look and listen closely to the discursive spaces of art in, from, and around the region that is referred to as Southeast Asia, from a historical perspective. The journal presents a necessarily diverse range of perspectives not only on the contemporary and modern art of Southeast Asia, but indeed of the region itself: its borders, its identity, its efficacy, and its limitations as a geographical marker and a conceptual category. As such, the journal is defined by a commitment to the need for and importance of rigorous discussion, of the contemporary and modern art of the domain that lies south of China, east of India, and north of Australia.
The journal publishes a mix of peer-reviewed Articles and non-peer-reviewed material, including Roundtables, Responses, Translations, exhibition and book Reviews and archival documents worthy of circulation.
The journal is edited by a collective of scholars and practitioners (http://southeastofnow.com/editorial-collective/), supported by an eminent and active Advisory Board.
This journal is open access thanks to the support of the Chen Chong Swee Asian Arts Programme at Yale-NUS College and the Foundation for Arts Initiatives. Print subscriptions are available and individual numbers are available at selected bookshops in the region.

Peer Review Policy
Southeast of Now practices double-blind peer review by at least two professional peer reviewers. That is to say the writer and the reviewer remain anonymous to each other. Peer review is facilitated and mediated by the members of the editorial collective, supported by NUS Press where required, and peer reviews remain confidential between the editorial collective, the author, the reviewer and the publisher. The editorial collective and the publisher reserve the right to edit the peer reviews before sharing with authors.
Reviews remain the intellectual property of peer reviewers, and the editorial collective and NUS Press may use them only for the purposes of the peer review process. If requested by the author to transfer peer reviews to another journal we will seek permission of the reviewer first.
