East Asia and World War II

East Asia and World War II


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
5:00 – 8:00 p.m.
Boise State University

Three additional lectures were viewed online between Jan. 26 and Feb. 23.
