Subject Area: Asian Studies

This Gateway course introduces you to the different countries that make up the Asian region and the interdisciplinary methods used to research and study Asia (known as Asian Studies). Using an all-Asia approach with a focus on the twentieth century, it will give you a broad knowledge of the diversity of the societies that constitute Asia. You will learn about the different cultures that make up East, South and Southeast Asia, including religion, general colonial histories, constructions of gender, Asian cities, the politics of democracy and authoritarianism, and the connections between Asian food and ethnic identities.
