GEOG 101 AMU week 7 forum Southeast Asia American Military University assistance is available at Domyclass.
Choose one of the two topics below for your primary post. Your primary post is due by Wednesday 11:55 PM ET, and your two required replies by Sunday, 11:55 PM ET.
Topic 1. What’s in a name?
Names have power. What a particular nation or geographic feature is called varies depending on who’s doing the naming, for a variety of political, cultural, and even economic reasons. Find a naming controversy involving Southeast Asia. Discuss the basis of the controversy, identify who calls the feature by what name and why, and then explain your opinion on what the geographic feature should be called. You could look at why the US government refuses to call Myanmar by that name (they still call it Burma http://blogs.state.gov/countries/burma ), or the controversy over naming the South China Sea, but there are more to choose from!
Topic 2. Natural Resources in Southeast Asia
Many of the countries in Southeast Asia depend heavily on their natural resources. Choose a country in Southeast Asia and discuss what resources they depend on and how they use them. For instance, do they transform them into something else, or do they sell the resources on the world markets? Also discuss some of the problems caused by this resource use, and how sustainable these resources are for the future.
