ASIAN 200

Asian Identities


Description

Students explore the changing and contested nature of Asian identities through readings of seminal scholarly and theoretical texts on each theme, combined with analysis of the ways these themes are reflected in film, fiction and other popular cultural texts. The four themes (nationalism; gender; minorities; and indigenous rights) and a concentration on post-1945 East and South-East Asia provide the focus.

For full course information see the Digital Course Outline for ASIAN 200.
