Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2017-2018.

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.
