Welcome to our website showcasing final projects from ASIA 1000 Origins of Contemporary Southeast Asia. As part of this course, students selected a photo from the University of Colorado Library Rare and Distinctive Collections and wrote an analysis of it, exploring topics ranging from colonialism to gender to the environment and beyond.

Our website provides a platform for these insightful student analyses, allowing readers to gain a deeper understanding of the complex and multifaceted history and culture of Southeast Asia. By delving into a diverse range of themes, these projects offer unique perspectives on the origins of contemporary Southeast Asia.

Through this website, we aim to showcase the work of students while also providing a valuable resource for anyone interested in the history, culture, and society of Southeast Asia. So take a look around, explore the projects, and discover something new about this region.
