ASIAN 2208 - Introduction to Southeast Asia

(GB) (CA-AS)      
Fall. 3 credits. Student option grading.

A. Fuhrmann.

This course introduces key questions in the study of Southeast Asia (Brunei, Burma, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam) and its diasporas. It combines a rigorous introduction to Southeast Asian historical, religious, literary, visual, and political traditions and the ways in which scholars have thought about them with the opportunity for students to develop small-scale fieldwork, curatorial, or media projects. Themes to be discussed include notions of kinship, gender, political conflict, media, sexuality, textual and visual genres, and forms of belief and belonging. (GE)
