The course examines issues and legacies of colonialism, the Second World War, and the Vietnam War, with a focus on memory studies and oral history in East and Southeast Asia. We will explore how official narratives and vernacular memories of these war experiences have been constructed and interpreted, generating boundaries and ongoing power struggles between so-called perpetrators, victims, heroes, and bystanders during the post-war period.
