This panel examines the legacy of colonial land policies and practices in Southeast Asia. We seek to explore the origins of colonial land policies, how these policies travelled across different colonial territories and were used by both colonizer and colonized in different chronological periods, geographies and contexts. We are interested in the production of colonial knowledge around land and land governance as well as the circulation of expertise and experts within and between colonial Empires. How policies, people and practices interacted and were transformed, and the effects or legacies of these policies on contemporary land policy and practice. We encourage the submission of papers that how colonial knowledge about land and land practices was produced, by whom, why and how. Works that identify key colonial agents and institutions responsible for the production of knowledge and circulation of ideas regarding land. How this knowledge was transformed into practice. And the legacy of these policies and practices in contemporary society.
