EAST 261 - On the Edges of China

FC SSCI CD
4 credits
Modern China’s culture and politics are shaped by its relations to border areas and beyond, and vice versa. This course explores the modern histories of the places where China meets Central, South, Northeast, and Southeast Asia. We will revisit the conception of the modern Chinese nation-state by placing places such as Xinjiang, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Manchuria at the center of discussion. Topics include environment, war legacy, ethnicity, colonialism, nation-building, and societal transformation.

This course is cross-listed with HIST-261
