|ETHNIC RESISTANCE IN ASIA|
|Based on the survey of postcolonial Southeast Asian history, the course will focus on studying rising tensions between the established states of Thailand, Burma/Myanmar, the Philippines, Laos and the United States and their ethno-social minorities in the twentieth century. Students are expected to choose their own research project in the beginning stage of the course and to prepare their research materials throughout the semester. Building upon the chosen case studies and theoretical reviews on nationalism and ethnic nationalism, students will present their research results in the last class meeting and submit a short research essay in the end of the semester.|
