課程概述

In this class, we will work together to learn the distinctive cultures and contemporary issues of people’s life in the Pacific—the vast area covering Polynesia, Micronesia, and Melanesia. Except for Papua New Guinea, the major area is covered by the largest sea in the world, dotted with tiny islands. Yet, lying between two major continents, Asia and America, Oceania is not merely a pathway for the sixteenth century European explorers and traders, nor the stepping stones for island-hopping during World War II. The islanders very own life and history, nevertheless, have been deeply intertwined with the Europeans’ presence since the sixteenth century. Throughout the semester, we are going to read several ethnographies to unravel those encounters. We will discuss the islanders’ pre-colonial expansion, local understanding of suffering, and the racial-gendered stereotypes of them, how they struggle with climate change, as well as the devastating land and sea-grabs.
