HIST 310 - MODERN KOREA AND THE WORLD
The aim of this course is to introduce Korean history to those students with little or no exposure to Korea and to challenge commonly held assumptions by those who do. The course will explore the cultural, political, and social impact of Korea's internationalization from early modern times to the contemporary period. The first part of the course will explore the turbulent interplay between Chosen Korea, dynastic overthrow in China, civil war in Japan, and the threat of Western imperialism. The second part of the course will focus on 20th century Korea--the colonial experience, division, war, and relations between the two Koreas, China, Japan, Russia, and the United States.
