Department/Discipline: Economics and Diversity and Globalism Studies
Course Title: Rise of Asia (DGS 160)
Description: This new course in the Diversity and Global Studies department is designed to fulfill transfer credit into the undergraduate program at the UW Jackson School of International Studies.
It covers three periods: the late 19th century and early decades of the 20th century, where we consider comparative empires and colonialism; the tumultuous middle decades that saw in many parts of Asia rising nationalism, the formation of sovereign nation-states, and the emergence of some of the world’s most dynamic new economies; and the most recent decades in which Asian states confront rising prosperity and the challenges that accompany it, enduring goals of development, and new global challenges to political order.
