Course Description

The culturally diverse Asia-Pacific region has experienced extraordinary change over the last century. To understand those changes, this course applies a geographic lens to the study of topics including demography, culture, ecology, settlement patterns, identity, industry, agriculture, political and economic patterns, resources, migration, urbanization, globalization, and the environment. Diversity and interdependence emerge as central themes as we explore major social, political, ecological, and economic debates in the study of the Asia-Pacific region, setting these issues within their spatial, historical, and cultural contexts.
