Advanced undergraduate course:

In the Autumn, I will be teaching an advanced-level seminar course at The University of Hong Kong's Department of History. My course, HIST2187 'Critical Approaches to the End of Empire in Southeast Asia,' will challenge students to grapple with different ways of examining decolonisation and the rise of post-colonial statehood in Southeast Asia. HIST2187 will be the first course with a regional focus on Southeast Asia to be taught at HKU in well over a decade. My lectures and tutorials will encourage the study of imperial decline and post-colonial transition through a number of different approaches: studying different national-colonial contexts; casting light on minorities, women and other underrepresented groups; and looking at key themes such as the environment, migration, trade, resources and geographic space.

Course syllabi:

I have devised bespoke course syllabi for both introductory and advanced level undergraduate teaching. These courses are linked to my research interests into Southeast Asia and colonialism, whilst also drawing upon wider themes in Asian, imperial and global history.

I am also able to teach courses on subjects including (but not limited to) the British Empire, imperialism in Asia, the Cold War, modern European history, maritime history, history of technology, and transnational, world and global histories.

Please feel free to reach out to me for enquiries or further details.
