This module challenges students to consider the viability of defining Southeast Asia as a 'region`. It introduces students to major themes in the emergence of Southeast Asian countries as modern nation-states during the 20th century. The approach is both comparative and based on case studies; it explores broad themes and trends for the region while examining specific case studies in detail. In addition, the students will also examine the differential impact which colonialism and nationalism had on different sectors of Southeast Asian societies.
