Udaya is the leading scholarly journal of Khmer culture and art.
Its name, meaning “rising sun,” with its implication
of dawn and rebirth, symbolizes the reemergence of Khmer scholarship
after decades of civil unrest. First published in 2000, the journal
attempts to study the cultural past of Cambodia and to represent
as well the current thinking about multiple aspects of Khmer society.
Embracing articles by international and rising young Khmer scholars
in English, French and Khmer, Udaya is the voice of a new generation
while offering a forum for renewed engagement with the past.
Since 2005, Udaya has been published by FOKCI. Each year, a single
issue is published.
