This course offers an introduction to history of East Asia prior to “modern” times. The intent is both to understand the past in its own context and also to appreciate how historical legacies shape the ways in which Chinese, Japanese, and Koreans think about themselves even today. In these exhibits, student groups analyzed primary sources in order to detail the lives of famous people in East Asia or explain the significance of a work or cultural phenomenon.
