HIST 7810 Colloquium: U.S. Imperialism & the Pacific World (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

Although the concept of the "Atlantic World" is a staple in the study of history, the "Pacific World" has not received the same attention. This course explores the idea of a Pacific World and the United States' role in its construction and perpetuation. Focusing on relationships among and between the various countries of East and Southeast Asia and the U.S., we will examine the political, cultural, and social connections of the Pacific Rim and consider how American economic, cultural, and military activities have contributed to its rise as an imperialist power in this region.
