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, a village stay, language training, urban homestay, as well as formal classes given by staff from ANU and from the University of Da Nang. The course focuses on experiencing and understanding the complex relationships between development and the environment. Students will have the opportunity to conduct group and individual research on such issues as the changing nature of rural lives, the relationship between the modern and traditional sectors, rural-urban migration, concepts of human well-being, and the social and environmental impacts of tourism. The focus is on the impact of rapid contemporary change on the environment, culture, family structure and on specific groups such as villagers, migrants, farmers and women.
Cost: The cost of the field trip is $1200 plus airfares and personal spending. The cost of the field trip will be charged directly to students.
