課程概述

Course Description

The subject of this course is to introduce East Asia as an integral whole and its development in various aspects at modern times. For the aforementioned purpose, this course is divided into three parts. The first part covers the region’s geography, ethnicity, and civilization to give students general picture of what East Asia is, has been, and should be. The second part discusses the region’s international relations, economic linkages, as well as political, social, and legal development. The third part proceeds in a round-table format, in which the students, on a group basis, debate on two themes, one being political reconciliation and identity construction, and the other the future direction of socio-economic development and civilization.
