HISTORY 95E: Trenches, Guerrillas, and Bombs: Modern Warfare in East Asian History

(95E is 3 units; 295E is 5 units.) This course is an introduction to the field of military history. But rather than centering on the typical Western perspectives, it focuses on studying the East Asian modern warfare during the early 20th century. Students will investigate, define, and historicize different kinds of wars, and draw historical lessons to better understand the contemporary military conflicts. From the trench warfare in the Russo-Japanese War, to the guerrilla warfare of the Chinese Communist Party, and to Americans' strategic bombing in the Korean War, students will identify modern warfare's historical characteristics in East Asia and reflect on how they continue to affect the politics in the region today.

HISTORY 95N: Maps in the Modern World

Preference to freshmen. Through critical essays, maps, and atlases focusing on California, this seminar explores four principal themes: the roots of modern mapping in the rise of the state; maps as commodities; cartographies of race; and counter-mapping (where the marginalized take map-making into their own hands). Students learn to use resources in the Branner Map Library, Stanford digital collections, and the David Rumsey Map Center. The culminating project involves making and annotating your own map of the campus.
