This advanced course, conducted entirely in Thai, aims to familiarise the student with many forms of modern Thai prose, its position and importance in modern Thai society, and how different forms of prose are manifest in the Thai language and cultural milieu. Students gain a practical knowledge of several genres of modern Thai prose. They will also be able to recognise and understand the work of key authors, popular narratives and controversial issues in the modern era. Students are expected to actively engage in critical discussions, and to produce critical reviews of topics under consideration in the course. The class will assist each participant to actively develop their own views of modern Thai prose and its salience in contemporary Thai society.

Indicative Assessment

Assessment will be based on: contribution to class discussion (attendance, preparation, participation, and presentation) (20%); written assignments (30%); oral presentation (25%); final essay (25%). All assessment is conducted in the Thai language.

The course will be taught over a period of one month or approximately 70 contact hours in January and February at Thammasat University, Bangkok, Thailand.
