Subtitle it! Increasing Access to Southeast Asian Cinema Resources
This lecture/demonstration focuses on the development of a course designed to teach advanced Southeast Asian language students the process of subtitling film from Southeast Asia into English. In language classrooms, film subtitles can be turned on and off and selected scenes can be culled to highlight language-use situations. In area studies, subtitled film can expand the range of cultural studies topics available to educators and increase the availability of film for outreach use in the English speaking world.
Paul Rausch is associate director of the Center for Southeast Asian Studies, UHM. When he is not thinking about Southeast Asia, he is subtitling Southeast Asian films!
