Description
Asia is by far the largest and most populous continent on Earth, and home to significant social, political, and economic diversity. Yet far too often the history and culture of Asian countries are taught without reference to their regional and global connection, or if a connection is made, it is defined by European colonial history. In this course, we will consider Asia in terms of connections that define the continent. We will look at how Asia from a national, regional, and global perspective, with an eye to the way that Asia has influenced and connected the planet. From anime, k-pop, and Bollywood to global economic flows to political, religious, and ethical thought, we will look at how Asia is and has been a global phenomenon. Throughout this student led course, we will work on developing a research question, doing primary and secondary research, and in the end of producing a capstone research project.
