Class Details

This tutorial examines the theoretical literature on nationalism, and then uses insights from those readings to study of the emergence and development of modern nationalist movements and national identities in China, Japan, Korea — both South and North — and Taiwan. It is an Exploring Diversity Initiative course and, as such, engages in explicit and critical cross-cultural comparisons, asking how theories of nationalism developed largely from European history might need to be revised when applied to East Asia, and how experiences of nationalism and expressions of national identity vary within East Asia.
