Core unit of the HMA major to be taken at Intermediate level .
What does it mean to 'study Asia'? And how might we go about it? What are the important academic debates which shape our understanding of Asia today?
In this unit, you will learn how to closely read and critically analyse some key texts which influence the study of Asia.
You will have an opportunity to extend your learning to other types of ‘texts’ on Asia such as museums, film, and even novels in order to explore how knowledge about Asia is constructed.
