The course introduces students to contemporary Southeast Asia by focusing on case studies from central Vietnam. The emphasis is on integrating formal learning with first hand experience. The in-country work will include fieldtrips, village stay, language training, as well as formal classes given by staff from ANU and staff from the University of Da Nang. The course focuses on understanding the complex relationships between development and the environment issues. Students will have the opportunity to case studies such as the changing nature of village/rural lives, the relationship between the modern and traditional sectors, rural-urban migration and livelihood issues and the social and environmental impacts of tourism. The focus is on the impact of contemporary change on the environment, culture, family structure etc. and on specific groups such as villagers, migrants, farmers and women.
