HIST 372 - From Samurai to Siam Qian: East Asian Peoples, Politics, & Cultures

Credits: Three (3)
If you watched the grand scope of human history unfold from a seat on the moon, the enduring contributions, and longevity of the institutions, of East Asia would be strikingly apparent. From China’s “5,000” years of civilization to the rise and fall of Japan’s empires, this course investigates the development of East Asia from approximately 1500 to the modern period. While the course primarily centers on Japan and China, students will spend some time exploring the relationships these regions fostered with Korea, Vietnam, and Central Asia.[M; N; I]
