ANTH 4760 Ethnography of Southeast Asia
Professor Carla Jones
Join us as we discover the anthropological scholarship on Southeast Asia, a region with some of the highest ethnic, linguistic, and cultural diversity in the world. From the Buddhist cosmological origins of modern Thailand to the gendered dynamics of market trade in Java, the politics of reproduction in Singapore, the allure of pop music in English, the socialist and spiritual aesthetics of apartment design in Vietnamese apartments, and the globalization of mass manufacturing to export processing zones, Southeast Asia provides fascinating examples of cultural vibrancy.
