東アジアの思想

Discovering Asia
Since when have there been "Asia" and “East Asia”? This course explores how the concepts of "Asia" and "East Asia" were “discovered", in other words, created and used in history and what this process of discovery/creation and use has meant for people in the region and in the world.

"Asia" and "East Asia" are not just geographical concepts but also ideological and political ones. They were used to make sense of space as well as identity. They were also used to grasp power and establish authority. We will look at the questions of identity and power in these two spatial concepts by examining why and how people in Europe, Japan, China, India, the U.S. all had/have persistent interests in talking about "Asia" and "East Asia."

As such, the objectives of the course are both a historical one – trying to understand how people talked about (East) Asia and for what purposes – and a conceptual one – to understand how the ideas of (East) Asia have both facilitated and compromised historical imaginations of human communities.
