EASTASN 97: The International Relations of Asia since World War II (EASTASN 297)

Asian international relations since World War II were dominated by the efforts of the newly independent nation-states of Asia, almost all of which had been colonies before the war, to establish and maintain sovereignty in a context of American and Soviet competition for influence in the region. This course traces the major developments of the period, including the Chinese civil war, the U.S. occupation of Japan, the division of Korea and the Korean War, the South and Southeast Asian independence struggles, the American and Soviet alliance systems, the Vietnam War, the strategic realignments that led to the end of the Cold War in Asia, the emergence of Central Asia, and the legacy of issues that the period has posed for the region today.

EASTASN 143: Taiwan's Democratic Evolution (EASTASN 243)

This course is an introduction to the contemporary politics of Taiwan. Once a poor, insecure autocracy, today Taiwan has been transformed into a prosperous and stable liberal democracy, albeit one whose long-term security remains imperiled by the rising power of the People's Republic of China. We will draw on concepts and theories from political science to explore distinct aspects of this ongoing political evolution, including the transition to and consolidation of democracy, origins and trajectory of economic and social development, sources of Taiwanese nationalism, security of the Taiwanese state and its relationship to the PRC and the United States, parties and elections, and public policy processes and challenges.

The course will be a multidisciplinary approach to North Korea, using the fields of sociology, International Relations, history, and economics. The course will begin by exploring western media images of North Korea in order to establish its place in the global order. It will then look back at the process of decolonization and state formation in the 1940s and 1950s before looking at the contours of inter-Korean competition during the Cold War. The course will then turn to look at the contemporary nuclear and missile crisis as the defining feature of North Korea's international relations as well as the contemporaneous economic and social changes that have taken place during the last twenty years.
