Fall 2017 Course: US-Asian Relations

Looking for a stimulating course for the fall semester? Space is still available for Professor Gregg Brazinsky's fall graduate seminar: History 6301.11 US-Asian Relations. The class will be held on Wednesdays, from 5:10 - 7:00 PM.

About the Course: This course will explore the history of U.S.-Asian Relations in the twentieth century. The rise of East Asia during this period was a world transforming historical event. Understanding America's role in the process is critical to understanding contemporary East Asia. The course will cover the evolution of America's relationships with Japan, China, and the two Koreas through reading some of the most important new literature on the subject. It will help students to better understand the economic, political, strategic and cultural interactions that occurred between the U.S. and Asia. The course can be counted toward a regional concentration in Asia for the ESIA.

About the Instructor: Gregg A. Brazinsky has written two important books on U.S.-Asian relations: Nation Building in South Korea: Koreans, Americans and the Making of a Democracy and Winning the Third World: Sino-American Rivalry during the Cold War. He is proficient in both Mandarin Chinese and Korean.
