EAST 163 - Korea and East Asia: From Ancient Times to the Present

FC SSCI CD
4 credits
This course is designed to introduce students to a broad survey of Korea’s history, both ancient and modern. It will examine various interpretive approaches to the political, social, cultural, and diplomatic history of Korea. We will also investigate contemporary nationalist theories of Korean development, including Japanese imperial legacies of colonial conquest, and how they have informed Koreans’ view of their ancient past as well as influenced current debates about the two Koreas’ reunified future.

This course is appropriate for new students.
This course is cross-listed with HIST-181
