履修上の注意
Substantively, the class tries to understand the transformation to modernity in Southeast Asia under the colonial environment that has left many legacies in Southeast Asian countries to this day, not only as ideas but also as social institutions in everyday life. For critical thinking, the comprehension and conceptualization of the assigned readings should lead students to criticism and questioning, and to see the implications beyond the particular cases.
