|Subject Overview:||From the growing influence of Islam in Indonesia to tourist industries in Vietnam and Cambodia, built on war time experiences this subject explores the history and lasting legacies of political, social and cultural change in modern Southeast Asia. Using case studies from Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Malaya, Indonesia, Singapore and the Philippines from the 19th and 20th centuries we will explore European colonisation, anti-colonial resistance, war and its impact on the societies of Southeast Asia. We will also examine nationalism, decolonisation, and contemporary issues ranging from ethnic tensions, separatist movements, religious revival, economic globalisation and migration. The focus of this subject will be the experience of Southeast Asian peoples of key moments in history and of broad social changes.
