HIST 119 - East Asian Civilizations

Description
Introduces students to historical reasoning. Students learn to analyze evidence from the past in context in order to explain how the past produced the ever-changing present. This course uses a culture of East Asia (e.g., China or Japan) as a focal point for investigating the history of the region. Students will gain a broad-based historical and cultural understanding of East Asia in its global context, beginning with the origins of this culture, and including its inter-regional connections and its encounters with the West. Topics may include Eastern philosophies of politics and religion, political dynasties and nation state formation, expansion and empire, multiculturalism, commodities and trade, rebellion and revolution. This course fulfills the Historical Studies requirement in the core curriculum.
