HIST-371   Asia & Pacific Since 1850

An examination of the experience and impact of Westerners in East Asia, principally between 1850 and 1950. Includes a sampling from each category of Western residents (many Americans) who played interesting roles in the modern history of China, Japan, and Korea: foreign missionaries, merchants, diplomats, and academics. In addition to other course work, each student will select a case study of an individual, family, or small group as the subject of a paper.
