Description: The brief Japanese occupation of Southeast Asia (1941-45) was a complex phenomenon involving the complicity of many Asian nationalist leaders. It contributed to the unraveling of western colonial rule but at a brutal human cost. Through texts, memoirs, fiction and propaganda films, we will explore those tumultuous years in Burma, Indochina, Malaya, Indonesia, and the Philippines.
