This seminar about modern Cambodia tackles the issues that dominate the political, socio-cultural, religious and historic landscape of Cambodia. The dominance of the Khmer Rouge and imagery of Angkor in historical explanations of Cambodia is ripe for reconsideration. New histories and anthropologies must grapple with these two intensely related moments in Cambodian history even as they attempt to move beyond them. In this course, students will help select readings that help critique the dominance of these tropes. We may begin the course with a review of Penny Edwards, Cambodge and recent studies of Cambodia within French Indochina. Other readings might include: Alexander Hinton, Man or Monster: The Trial of a Khmer Rouge Torturer, Anne Hansen, Learning to Behave, and others.

When Offered Spring.
