This subject explores the interlocking themes of identity and ideology in a variety of Asian contexts. It examines how the ways in which people define themselves - 'identities'- are affected by socially-structured systems of thought - 'ideologies'. National ideologies and identities from across the Asian region will be explored in conjunction with study of ethnic, religious, class, gender, and regional forms of identity and ideology.
Students acquire a broad knowledge of traditions, ideologies and contemporary developments in the Asian region through extensive reading in and discussion of relevant academic scholarship in Asian Studies.
Students develop the ability to use interdisciplinary frameworks to engage critically with key issues in contemporary Asia by reading materials from a wide range of disciplines including history, anthropology, cultural studies, political economy, literary and religious studies.
