Imperial/Anti-Imperial Asia

Imperialism and Anti-Imperialism in Asia
What was, or is, imperialism? In this seminar we will examine the dynamics and violence of imperialism in East and Southeast Asia during the 19th and 20th centuries. We will focus on ways in which scholars and historical actors have made sense of imperialism, the social changes that it brought about, and how people have sought liberation from it. With particular attention to the trajectories of China, Japan, Vietnam, and Indonesia, students will gain a broad understanding of how imperialism has been challenged and defended, as well as the ways in which its legacies continue to shape our present. (Not open to students who have taken HIST 0303). 3 hrs. sem.
