ASNS6900 - Contemporary Asian Societies

Semester 1, 2013  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Olivier Ansart

Description

This unit is a compulsory core unit for the Master of Asian Studies. The unit will explore some of the most challenging and sensitive issues confronting Asian societies today while providing training in the conceptual methods used to critically and objectively examine those issues. Where do globalization and rapid economic change leave human rights, minority groups, women, civil society, environment, the poor and the ideals of religious and cultural integrity? Case studies will be used to illustrate concepts, theories and critical methods that can help our thinking on such issues.
