Southeast Asia Info Session - CANCELLED!

Thu, April 4, 2024 • 5:15pm - 6:15pm (1h) • Hasenstab 105

This program will cover the key thematic issues of political economy and ecology of Southeast Asia. The program focuses on learning by experiencing and participating in local livelihood activities.  Students will connect their experiences to theories and concepts that explain political development and ecological issues relating to the challenges of nationalism, state formation, regional integration, regional development, the rise of the power of non-state actors, and the struggles for citizen-sovereignty. We will examine these frontier issues against the backdrop of Southeast Asia’s societal changes through kingdoms, colonial eras, emergence of nation-states, the influence of globalization, and environmental changes.

It will emphasize understanding and linking the theories and practices of political economy and ecology of Southeast Asia by experiencing life in Thailand, Lao PDR, and Myanmar or Cambodia. Students will gain a fundamental and first-hand understanding of conceptual issues, empirical evidence, and theoretical puzzles that resonate in Southeast Asian politics and development but are also relevant to many other regions of the world.

This program is highly experiential — activities and schedules are subject to change with very little notice, so students must be prepared to be flexible!
