HIST 4005 The Asia Pacific War (Fall: 3 )


Course Description

Co-taught by a Japanese and Chinese historian, this course explores the Second World War in Asia from multiple historical and historiographical perspectives. The term "Asia-Pacific War" explicitly links the conflict between Japan and the United States known as the Pacific War (1941-45) to Japan's expansionist ventures in Korea, Taiwan, the Chinese mainland, and Southeast Asia, and considers the cultural and intellectual dimensions of the war (and the way it is remembered) along with the political and military ones.
