HIS 355 Colonialism and Nationalism in Southeast Asia, 1600-1960 (3 credits)

This course will focus on the experience of colonialism and the development of independent modern nation-states in Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, and Indonesia, and to a lesser extent, Malaysia, Singapore, Burma, and the Philippines. The course seeks to help students understand how colonialism redefined pre-existing relations among the peoples of the region and how modern nationalism and. independence movements emerged in this context. Although political and economic interests are essential parts of this story, the course will focus on intellectual, cultural, and social factors.
