Where: East-West Center

This multidisciplinary program will offer four weeks of context-rich engagement with the multiple ways in which Southeast Asian societies responded to colonial presences and how the legacies of these experiences shaped subsequent efforts to forge national identities, envision independent political futures, and imagine new relationships between the state and its citizens. By offering deep and context-rich engagement with key traditions, practices, and primary texts, Colonial Experiences and Their Legacies in Southeast Asia will enable educators from community colleges, liberal arts colleges and undergraduate-serving universities to develop curricular materials for a wide range of humanities and social science courses, including history, religion, philosophy, anthropology, political science, art history and literature.

This institute is possible with funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Sessions are closed to the public.
