History of International Relations in East Asia: New Perspectives
Course Description

This course takes a new perspective on the international history of Japan and East Asia from the beginning of the 19th century to the immediate post-war period. Our readings will challenge the traditional nation-centered approach to significant events. In addition to covering concepts such as colonialism, imperialism, conflict and war, etc., the course will also examine important issues that transcend national boundaries, including immigration (karayuki-san, Japanese Americans), environmental degradation (the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power incident), business transactions (the expansion of the market for textile products), and ideas (Pan-Asianism). We will also incorporate crucial historical topics such as race, ethnicity, and gender by investigating the eugenics movement in East Asia, comfort women, and black internationalism, while paying specific attention to African Americans’ views of Japan. This course also addresses international history beyond the region by studying the relations between East Asian countries and the Anglosphere, especially the UK and the US. Ultimately, this course shows how international history moves across national and racial boundaries, and how history is made not only by people in power (politicians, military leaders, intellectual) but also by ordinary people.


Course Objectives:

This course will give students an opportunity to encounter new perspectives about the international history of East Asia. Students are expected to comprehend multiple dimensions of international relations, especially how “ race” has played an important role in international relations and how ordinary men and women have played significant roles in making history.
