What do we study?
East Asia and the West
East Asia refers to the East Asian region: China, Japan and Korea
Commons between the three countries: drink tea, use chopsticks,
eat rice--cultural sharing
We study a portion of East Asia
Don't study everything that happened in this time; will be selective in the
course materials
Goal: to be interested in the history and culture behind these countries
Why do we study East Asia?
We know that China is the oldest civilization in the world
Huge impact on other Asian civilizations
Experience tensions between these civilizations
Two main powers/ethnic group that fought over control: the Mongols and
the Chinese
Today, we know the technological and economic impact that East Asia has is
huge, as well as their popular culture--astonishing
China's has one of the largest economies, along with Japan
Cars, electronics, etc. often come from Japan or Korea
Anime, Korean dramas, KPOP, etc.
History shapes the contemporary state of the country
1905 when Korea was a colony of Japan until the end of WWII
China's reputation used to be very rural and ‘undeveloped’, but now the
economy is booming and everyone wants to have some sort of economic
business with them
