East Asian Studies Minor

This specialization package addresses selected themes concerning the experience of particular nations and of East Asia as a whole in the contemporary period. It explores on the one hand the turbulent process of integrating Asian nations and states into a global order and on the other discusses nationalism as a powerful motivating force in the modern development of these countries.

Thus, students should be prepared for (and excited about) investigations into and discussions about the manner in which contemporary history, social practice, political philosophy, political culture and even literature and cinema offer an alternate, but equally significant understanding of East Asian society and politics in the present. Participation in this class assumes a high level of preparedness and a willingness to participate actively.

The minor is not recommended for first-year students.
