This course will be occasionally scheduled to offer one-off opportunities to study under visiting experts, or to showcase a new teaching area. Information on the particular topic offered under this course will be outlined in the ‘Other Information’ section, including topic title, the topic convenor, and an indication of workload and indicative assessment. Classes in this course may cover emerging issues and provide an opportunity for students to learn about events, places, peoples and forms of knowledge in Asia and the Pacific, ranging from the local to the global. Topics may focus on particular societies and states, localities, or trans-regional issues. Many of the topics will build on the concepts and methodological tools presented in discipline courses, and give an in-depth understanding of how they are applied, and critiqued, in specific contexts.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

  1. demonstrate understanding of major issues and concepts associated with the Asia-Pacific region or a subregion of Asia and the Pacific;
  2. evaluate and apply these concepts;
  3. critically evaluate approaches to the study of Asia and the Pacific;
  4. demonstrate effective communication skills.

Other Information

This is a co-taught course. Any cap on enrolments in one course applies to both courses combined.
