Nationalism and Revolution in Southeast Asia (12 points)


Leader: Jane Drakard

Clayton Second semester 2003 (Day)

Synopsis: This unit aims to provide students with a thorough knowledge of the development of nationalism in three Southeast Asian colonies (drawn from Indonesia, Burma, Vietnam, The Philippines and Malaysia) during the early twentieth century and a comparative understanding of the way in which these movements developed into revolutionary struggle and led to eventual independence from colonial rule. The unit aims to develop students' awareness of the rich complexity of cultural and political change in this period of anti-colonial struggle and to encourage them to consider theoretical work on nationalism and cultural change in the context of these specific historical examples.
