Course Description: Japan's colonial empire disappeared over 70 years ago, but its legacies are felt throughout East Asia every day. Few historical topics stir emotions as deeply as the history of Japanese imperialism. How did this happen? What really went on in the Japanese empire? Why do people want to fight about it even today? This course explores these difficult but essential questions about East Asian history and memory. This course examines the motivations for empire-building, the economic and administrative policies of the empire, how ordinary people lived throughout the empire, and the historical impact of Japanese colonialism in spurring globalization in the region. Facing these complex and heart-rending topics demands sober reflection, but, in return, students can be rewarded with greater clarity in understanding current disputes and how they might be resolved. Assessment: two papers (70%), participation (30%).
