Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

The goal of this course is to provide a concise overview of the history of East Asia (mainly China, Japan, and Korea) from its beginnings until present time. A focus will be on the period from the 19th century onward. Students understand the major trajectories of East Asia’s history, the foundations of the region’s culture and society, and the various forms of interaction and interdependence that emerged over time and form the background for current events in economics, politics, and society in general.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

This is a text-based course. Accordingly, in preparation of each unit, students will be asked to read related book chapters to be prepared for active listening and discussion. During the classes, the instructor will outline the main components of the related texts and provide additional information. Expect reading about 40 pages per week on average.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

Regular participation is required.
Students must write two multiple-choice tests (for dates see class schedule). The questions in these tests were developed based on the readings that were due up to the day of the test. For the final test, only texts that were due after the mid-term exam are considered.
The final grade for the course will be calculated as follows:
Mid-term exam: 50%
Final exam: 50%
