Culture and Literature in S.E.A. History

During this module we will examine how the past in Southeast Asia has been recorded and presented and how the "literature" of these works influences our views of the region's history. In the first section of the course we will focus on how history was presented prior to the modern period in the region. The second section of the course will focus on depictions of Southeast Asian culture changed over time in the "literature", and how this may provide new understandings of the region. The course is targeted at students that are interested in Southeast Asian history, culture and literature.
