Religion and Society in Southeast Asia
Winter 2023 - This was a great class where we got to explore different religions in Southeast Asia by country and by religious practice. Every week, we had to do four academic article readings and two reflections on said readings. It was pretty chill as long as you got these done. For the midterm and final, you also got the option to write a fictional story based on the course content or create a PowerPoint presentation if you didn't want to write an academic paper. Overall, it was a chill and informative class about Southeast Asia! Definitely would recommend it.
the class is really interesting, if you're into S.E.A. he's from the phillipines with a filipina wife, so sometimes he forgets what country he's referring himself to (because he identifies himself as an american and filipino) and refers to both. just bring it up, and he'll correct himself. the class was pretty good. i turned in my paper late so i got a B in the class. it's relatively easy, but so interesting! you gotta be into the subject though, or you're be bored. i wish he taught more upp div seasian classes, but then i would have to wish for more seasian classes in general. the downside to small departments, i guess.
