Transforming Southeast Asia - ASNS3664

Year - 2019

Through case studies of agriculture, new kinds of industry such as clothing production, and tourism, we will look at how social change in Southeast Asia involves shifts in relations of production and consumption. We trace the colonial origins of present-day relations of production, and assessing the changes in social life that took place in the second half of the twentieth century, including new patterns of consumption generated by the rise of middle-class lifestyles.
