KNOWLEDGE PRODUCTION, RESOURCE ACCUMULATION MAINTENANCE AND ACCESS: A SOUTHEAST ASIAN EXPERIENCE
Shamsul A.b.,
   
The general argument advanced since the advent of ICT globally is that it has made knowledge more accessible to a wider public in super quick time. While this is true, it is also a fact that the way knowledge is organized is still very much in the mould of nation-states because it is produced and reproduced as well as consumed in the said mould. This essay discusses how, despite the presence of ICT, this still happens in the context of Southeast Asian studies, which is essentially a form of knowledge in itself The challenges and contradictions this process has produced is discussed and analyzed with examples from a Malaysian experience.
