HIS 213 - Survey: Becoming East Asia (4 Cr.)

(formerly HIS 113) (LER-TXT and LER-DIV)(GCR Humanities and Interdisciplinary Studies area)(WEC)
What is East Asia and how did it become so? Regions of the world are not natural, they are the products of human action and ideas about space, culture, history, and geopolitics. This course will examine how East Asia became a region, and what defined it as such through this process. It will focus on the histories of China, Korea, Vietnam, and Japan, and the history of region-building, from the 14th to the 20th centuries. Also open to students who have not previously taken and courses in history. Recommended but not required: 12 college credits or permission of the instructor. Every other fall semester. Dawley.
