This is a 'special topics' course that can deliver courses on emerging issues; permit visiting scholars to provide formal instruction; enable innovative courses to be trialled as opportunities arise, or allow small groups of advanced undergraduates to work closely with an active researcher from the College of Asia and the Pacific in some field of current research.  The course will be offered as opportunities arise. Proposals will be subject to approval by CHL Education Committee. The Committee will generally not approve the teaching of the same course twice under this course code. Regular courses should be subject to the normal course approval process. Topics will generally be announced towards the end of the semester before teaching begins.
The approach of the course must comply with the specification for a regional course within the Bachelor of Asian Studies:
In these courses students will learn about past and present issues, events, places, peoples and forms of knowledge in Asia, ranging from the local to the global. They may focus on particular societies and states, particular localities, or trans-regional issues. Many of these courses will build on the concepts and methodological tools presented in the “discipline” courses, and give an in-depth understanding of how they are applied, and critiqued, in specific contexts.
