This course explored East Asia during World War II. Participants studied the chronological aspects of the war and land/sea battles in East Asia. The focus of the seminar, however, was the social, economic, political, and religious changes that occurred in China and Japan due to World War II. We also explored the pedagogical methods that would work in presenting this epic event to our students.
Monday, January 26 and Monday, February 23
