trainers6

Aims:
 This module provides an introduction to the peoples and cultures of Southeast Asia. Among the subjects examined are processes of cultural and spatial changes and how people dealt with this in the past and how they deal with this today in different parts of Southeast Asia. Globalization and consumerism or the flow of commodities and necessities influence local cultures as well as the interrelationship between peoples, cultures and the environment, in particular the urban landscape. These processes of cultural change appear first in cities and then spread into outlying village areas. Commodity exchanges have led to multiculturalism and/or hybridization of culture that inevitably change the people’s way of life and the urban environment, and the changes are expressed through oral traditions, theatre, music and literature. By reading class assignments, attending lectures and completing presentation and papers, the module will foster first-hand interactions and knowledge sharing with the diverse peoples and cultures of the participating Southeast Asian countries.
