French colonial period scholars and adventurers created hundreds of profound studies of the Khmer Empire and their rich cultural legacy that still resonates throughout Southeast Asia. They also passionately wrote about sublime and painful relationships and romances that blossomed between Easterners and Westerners.
Most of these French books, novels and articles are long out-of-print and forgotten. But almost none have ever been translated into the English language. This is why we are seeking interested translators to bring select French works of Indochina literature into English.
