Information, Technology, and Society in Asia 224

Tourism, Militarism, and the Pacific
This course focuses on the concept and practice of Pacific Studies through the lens of history and cultural studies. It investigates the significance of the formation of various modern concepts of the Pacific, such as “Trans-Pacific” and “Pacific-Rim” within the context of critique of empire and colonialism. The course thus discusses such key issues in today’s Pacific Studies as indigeneity, settler colonialism, and militarization.

To provide a concrete context for the students who may not be familiar with the topic, the course specifically focuses on the history of tourism, particularly the development of so-called “militourism,” in the Pacific in such places as Okinawa, Guam, Vietnam, and the Philippines. The readings will include texts by such leading scholars as Cynthia Enloe, Scott Laderman, and Vernadette Gonzalez. The course will also have a field trip component to site(s) in Tokyo and/or its surroundings.
