Seminar. Course content varies. Offered occasionally by visiting or resident faculty.
SIS 590, The Study of Southeast Asia, is a course designed for graduate students using a variety of disciplinary approaches to Southeast Asian Studies. It presumes an interest in and knowledge of one or more Southeast Asian languages as well as regional histories and literatures. This is an interdisciplinary course designed to form a graduate student cohort. We will question how knowledges are produced about the region and what might need to be changed to open up increased dialogue between US-based and Southeast Asian scholars.
