HIST 364 Historical Landscape and National Identity in Modern East Asia

The course attempts to ground the history of modern East Asia in physical space and to invest the places we see with historical meaning. To this end, the course will be set in the historical sites in China, Japan, and South Korea. Through exploring the ritual, political, and historical significance of these sites, the course will investigate the forces that have transformed physical spaces into symbols of national/local identity. This course is also suitable for the Museum Studies minor.
