ASIAN 6601 - [Seminar on Thailand]

(also HIST 6870 )
Fall. 4 credits.

Next offered 2015-2016. Co-meets with HIST 4870 .

T. Loos, T. Chaolemtiarana.

This seminar about modern Thailand tackles the issues that dominate the political, socio-cultural, economic and historic landscape of Thailand. It will ask, through critical readings about Thailand, where thisnon-colonized country “fits” in the scholarship on (post)coloniality, globalization, and development. We focus on the classics and new scholarship on Thailand that spans the fields of the humanities and social sciences, including politics, history, religion, and anthropology. The seminar is created for upper level undergraduates and graduate students and will provide, through an in-depth look at Thailand, an important pivot point for comparativists and those in interdisciplinary studies examining countries in Asia and the developing world generally.
