HIST 4006 Rebuilding East Asia (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

Conceived as a sequel to HIST 4005 Asia Pacific War (though not formally linked), this course engages students to examine how people living in the Asia-Pacific region rebuilt their families, communities, cities, nations, and transnational relations after empire and war in the mid-20th century. The emphasis lies on the changing dynamics of regional relations informed by the legacies of past conflicts and the realities of the Cold War to better understand the political, social, and cultural issues affecting East Asia today.
