Course Description

This course is a chance for you to learn about the world’s fourth most populous nation. Indonesia contains about three hundred ethnic groups, and some 740 languages and dialects are spoken there. Indonesia is a part of the Pacific "Ring of Fire," with four hundred volcanoes, one third of which are active. In 1816, “the year without a summer” dominated Europe and North America, an event apparently caused by the eruption of Mount Tambora, which was larger than 1883’s Krakatoa eruption—also in Indonesia. Besides these topics, you’ll learn the culture, traditions, music, and dance of two of the largest Indonesian tribes, Javanese and Bataknese. We won’t forget Bali, one of the world’s top tourist spots. You’ll enjoy gamelan music and learn how batik is made. You’ll read and discuss some of Indonesia's traditional and modern literature and learn some simple sentences in the Indonesian language, which has neither tenses nor gender. This is a repeat of Ms. Lubis's spring 2019 term course.
