Japan America Collegiate Exchange Travel Program
Due to a generous grant from the Japan Foundation, Emerson College is pleased to offer the Japan America Collegiate Exchange Travel Program. This 4-credit Summer Session I course, from May 20–July 1, 2013, includes one week of travel to Japan, June 8–14, 2013. The course, HI201-01 Non-Western History: Asia in World History, 1750-2000, fulfills the Historical Perspective of the General Education Requirements and may be used toward a History minor.
This program examines Asia in an important era of transition in world history—the 18th to the 20th centuries. The course will select and study three regions: East Asia, South Asia, and the Middle East, focusing on Japan and India with a concluding survey of Turkey. Proceeding both thematically and chronologically, the course will cover topics such as the impact in Asia of the first contact with the west, globalization of commerce, the Genroku Age in Japan, the crisis and collapse of the Tokugawa Shogunate, Japan’s rise in the late 19th and early 20th centuries to world power, and the impact of the World Wars and the Cold War on the selected countries. The course will look at important thinkers such as the Japanese scholars and thinkers Fukuzawa Yukichi and Sakuma Shozan, India’s Rabindranath Tagore, and Jamal al-Din al-Afghani in the Middle East.
