Nationalism in Southeast Asia

The module provides a critical study of various theories and practices of nationalism in Southeast Asia from an interdisciplinary perspective. What is the relationship between colonialism and the development of national attachments and nationalist politics? What roles have ethnicity and religion played in the emergence of national and state identities in Southeast Asia? Students will address these questions and examine the rise of nationalism as a leading political principle and the fate of the nation-state in an increasingly globalized and globalizing world.
