ES 202 - The South China Seas: A History (4 Cr.)

(HIS 202) (GCR DA-AC)
The South China Sea is one of the most hotly contested bodies of water in the world today, but how the current disputes arose is not well understood. This class will explore the historic origins of contemporary problems by taking a very long-term approach to the study of human interactions with, and knowledge of, the South China Sea. It will adopt the approach and methodology of environmental history, and will incorporate GIS mapping technology so that the students will be able to show how ideas about, and territorial claims upon, the sea have changed over the past 1000 years by creating overlapping digital map layers. Recommended but not required: 12 college credits or permission of the instructor. Prerequisite: completion of GCR - Data Analytics Foundational level. Variable semesters. Dawley.
