SARE: Southeast Asian Review of English is a peer-reviewed international journal founded in 1980.

Writing in the inaugural issue, its founding editor, Lloyd Fernando, the first Malaysian Professor of English and Head then of the only Department of English in the country, declared that while SARE "will be a specialist journal" covering "an already diverse and still expanding area of literary, cultural and social interest: Malaysian and Singaporean literature in English through Commonwealth literature to Third World literature in English ... it won't be a journal of a jealously and zealously delimited specialism".

Thirty-five years and beyond, SARE is still faithful to those generous founding principles. It continues to be committed to its originating vision of promoting scholarship that transcends the boundaries of established canons and cultures, while being especially attentive to texts and constituencies that occupy the margins of nations. A pioneer in the literary and academic scene of Southeast Asia at the time of its launch, SARE now serves a global community of scholars and writers as an online journal that is freely and always available. Derived initially from the activities of the Malaysian Association for Commonwealth Literature and Language Studies (MACLALS), it is now produced by the Department of English of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, Universiti Malaya.

SARE particularly welcomes papers that explore diasporic and postcolonial interventions (new ethnicities, alternative cultural practices and lines of resistance) in the literatures and cultures of Southeast, South and East Asia, as well as other theoretically-informed articles on the languages and literatures in and of these regions.

In addition to promoting scholarship on a variety of genres such as literary fiction, drama, poetry, and media, including film and visual arts, popular culture, performance and other cultural texts and practices, SARE also seeks to publish:

  • Special issues with a particular thematic or regional focus
  • Interviews with regional writers and theorists
  • Reviews of recently-published literary and cultural criticism by scholars of or based in the Global South as well as reviews of novels and poetry of writers of the region
  • A selection of creative writing in the form of original poems and short prose fiction by established, emerging and previously unpublished writers
