ASIA 233 - Drugs, Sex, and Sovereignty in East Asia, 1800-1945

Description
East Asia's thousand-year superiority in global trade was lost when Britain began illegally selling massive amounts of opium in the 18th century, causing cultural and political changes in Japan and China. This course will analyze these changes in terms of sexuality and political sovereignty from 1800 until World War II. Class Notes: Some seats in this course are reserved for Asian Studies majors. Anyone may waitlist, and unused reserved seats will be released sometime on 11/19. https://asianstudies.unc.edu/registration-faq/.
