In both the Philippines and Indonesia, the short story is an important vehicle for artistic, emotional and socio-political expression and experimentation. This seminar will introduce students to some of the major contemporary themes, including romance, resistance, gender, and the challenges of modernization and the new global order. The comparative perspective will enrich our understanding of the strong narrative traditions of these two important countries of island Southeast Asia.

VON ROSPATT, A

While including the monastic Theravada traditions of Sri Lanka and Thailand, this class will focus on the Mahayana tradition of the Kathmandu Valley of Nepal, which here—uniquely in South Asia—has survived till the present day. We will approach this tradition by examining particular themes such as Buddhist monasticism and its interaction with the laity, the adaptation to the caste system, the cult of stupas and images, festivals of Buddhists deities, life-cycle and other rituals, the tradition's narrative literature, etc. Exploring continuities and ruptures, Nepalese Buddhism will be contrasted with Theravada Buddhism. For this we will draw on material from Sri Lanka and Thailand, and consider the recent introduction of Theravada Buddhism to the Kathmandu Valley, and the impact of Buddhist modernism. In this way the class will not only make sense of a complex religious field—the Kathmandu valley where Buddhism exists alongside Hinduism and indigenous traditions—but also allow for more general insights into Buddhism and how it functions in society.

FARUQUI, M D

Sensory history is an exciting and relatively new field of historical inquiry. It explores the role of the senses – sight, touch, smell, hearing and taste – in shaping history. In the words of Dr. Raquel Reyes, one of its leading practitioners, “it is based on the understanding that sensory perception is historically and culturally specific, bound to particular contexts and permeated by social values.” Drawing on a wide variety of readings, this graduate seminar will introduce participants to the most interesting analytical insights and methodological approaches offered by the leading practitioners in the field.

Fulfills the L&S breadth requirements in Arts & Literature.

The introduction of economic reforms in the early nineteen nineties ushered in a phase of unprecedented economic, social and political transformation in India. With growth rates second only to China, India displayed a newfound confidence that was reflected in marketing/political slogans such as “India Shining.” With the recent global economic slowdown, however, the “India story” has lost much of its shine and has prompted a reevaluation of the past two decades. What did the reforms mean for the most vulnerable and marginalized populations of India? Has the much-vaunted economic growth been inclusive? With this backdrop in mind, we turn to literature in order to examine the promise of equity and social justice in modern India. Although the focus is on the recent past, our material is not limited to literature stemming only from the post-liberalization period. We will reach further back in order to take a longer view on the focal themes of this class: caste, class and language.

We will read three exemplary works of Hindi literature in English translation: Upendranath Ashk’s Hats and Doctors, Omprakash Valmiki’s Jhoothan: An Untouchable’s Life and Uday Prakash’s The Girl with the Golden Parasol. We will also read Arvind Adiga’s Booker prize winning novel The White Tiger and Katherine Boo’s Behind the Beautiful Forevers: Life, Death, and Hope in a Mumbai Undercity, winner of the National Book Award for nonfiction.

DEWULF, J

The course fulfills the L&S breadth requirement in Arts & Literature.

This course focuses on literature about the colonial history of Indonesia, the former Dutch East Indies. We will cover five novels – all of them landmarks in Dutch literature (in English translation) - in their historical and cultural context. We begin with a historical introduction  about the Dutch East India Company and the Dutch colonial presence in Southeast Asia. We begin our analysis of literature with Multatuli’s Max Havelaar (1860), a controversial novel in which the author accuses his own country of being a “pirate-state, oppressing the Javanese people”. Other novels are Louis Couperus’ The Hidden Force (1900), a remarkable record of Javanese resistance to colonial oppression in the form of magical intimidation and Hella Haasse’s Forever a Stranger (1948), an impressive account of the widespread disillusionment among Dutch residents in the Indies when facing the impossibility of Dutch-Javanese coexistence after independence. We will continue with Jeroen Brouwers, who experienced life in an internment camp during the Japanese occupation of Indonesia in the Second World War and reproduced those horrors in Sunken Red (1981). We end with My Father’s War (1994), a moving account by Adriaan van Dis of the difficult integration in the Netherlands of Dutch colonials who returned “home” after Indonesia’s independence. No knowledge of Dutch language is required.

This course is cross-listed with Dutch C164 section 1. Either of these courses can be used toward complete of the S,SEASN Major.

SMITH, F J

Prerequisites: 1A or equivalent.

Students complete their study of everyday standard Khmer to a "survival" level.

While the memorization of vocabulary and common personal exchanges practiced in Khmer 1A will make up the majority of material studied, students will have some opportunity to learn to improvise and talk about personal work and research interests in Khmer. Topics include transportation and directions, the world of work, religion, health, and conducting daily life in Cambodia. Students learn to read simple authentic texts such as folk tales, personal letters, forms and roadside signs. Students continue their study of culturally appropriate behavior in the context of Khmer culture, including notions of "saving face" and maintaining social harmony, and how these are expressed in both spoken language and in one's actions.

Prerequisite: Khmer 100A.

Students learn to read roadside signs, scholarly articles, and an entire Khmer novel.

Topics include current events in Cambodia, Cambodian history and politics, and a basic overview of traditional Khmer literature. Much of this study will be accomplished by working on projects in groups with other students. One such project will involve the preparation and performance of a play based on sections of the modern Khmer novel students read in this course. All students will design and carry out an independent research project on the topic of their choice (which will account for 30% of the final grade), and present their research at the end of the second semester to an audience of their peers, entirely in Khmer.

They will also gain exposure to traditional, verse texts, and read, discuss, and undertake group projects based on a variety of modern Khmer short stories. As is the case with Intermediate Khmer, students will also undertake substantial independent study, culminating in a final oral presentation. However, the standard by which both written and oral material will be judged will be much higher for Advanced students. Special attention will be paid to formal speaking style and advanced grammatical structures in Khmer for all students, and colloquial spoken expression for non-native speakers.

This is a foundational course for learners of Vietnamese from the beginning level, aiming to build and develop proficiency in all four language skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing) with a balanced approach between conversational and grammatical instruction. Alongside with new vocabulary and grammatical structures, instructions on cultural awareness will also be given to help students make informed and nuanced choice of words and patterns. Multi-media and web-based contents facilitate students to self pace their out-of-class practices and drills to achieve the learning goals in the desirable period of time.
