The topic of this week's class is mainly on the paradox definition of 'Southeast Asia', particually on its 'location' and 'place' identity in the world. Some important issues will be going, including the location of Southeast Asia on the world map, the description on Southeast Asia in historical text, and the changing meaning of its location from the perspective of 'Southeast Asia'.
This ppt is a very, very short and easy introduction to know how to get the entrance to Southeast Asia from the map. For us, the maps are not completely 'means' to our ends, on the contrary, they are always full of 'meanings' while we are getting to the 'endless'. What the elememts the map would have? How to create your personal map to know the world of Southeast Asia? All are ready to be going on now!
This ppt is mainly about the structure of 18-week class, including the 3Ws ( What be learned, Why to learn, and How to know you've learned) and some important references related the issues of society and culture in Southeast Asia. Pls check the added file carefully. Thanks so much!
