HIST 230 - East Asian Thought

4.00 credit hours
This course examines the evolution of the East Asian intellectual tradition with a particular focus on the development of sociopolitical ideals during two periods of fundamental transformation: the establishment of “Imperial China” in 221 BCE and East Asia’s encounter with the West in the nineteenth century. Each focal point  will be explored through a role-playing game in which students take on the roles of historical figures and debate the issues that shaped East Asian civilization.
