Southeast Asian History

Covers the development of Southeast Asia (Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Burma, the Philippines, and East Timor) in the historical context of conflict between the indigenous societies and the global community of the colonial powers. The course contextualizes and examines the pre-colonial order, the colonial powers in SEA, World War II, and post-war independence movements. Political, social, and intellectual trends with an emphasis on the diversity of experiences are highlighted, but the course is intended as an introduction to a broad and diverse region of the world.
