Asian Studies

Asian Studies allows students to know something of the lives and concerns of people in circumstances different from their own. These differences reflect geography, history, belief, politics and other factors. Because of research and teaching strengths in the department, most attention is paid to island Southeast Asia, especially Indonesia. The first year unit offers a general introduction; units in later years explore various approaches and themes. The main disciplinary emphases are anthropology, political science and history.



HHS101 Introduction to Southeast Asia

Introduces the history and societies of the Indonesian archipelago. Various disciplinary approaches to the study of such an area are also discussed and illustrated. Particular attention is given to the development of writing and research skills.
