HIST233 - Asian Migration and the Making of Modern Asia, 1800 to the present

Description: 
The sanctity of national borders and territory has become an increasingly contentious issue between East Asian nation/states in recent years. Chinese, Korean, Japanese and other national claims to maritime territory are often based on historical claims—that territory before the era of imperialism the territory was under the exclusive control of their nation. However this elides a longer history of migration before and during the modern era that helped to shape today’s territorial borders, shared culture, and economic interdependence in East Asia. This course explores the effects of migration on the process of modernization in East Asia in order to reveal a more complicated history of race and identity, cultural exchange, and globalized labor and capital networks connecting Asian nations to each other and the world.
