Survey of the history of China, Korea, and Japan, from mythical times to 1600. The course emphasizes the historical interactions and transformations that have made East Asia a coherent cultural region: exchanges of objects and ideas, technology and writing, monks and merchants, artists and scholars.

Class Meetings will combine lectures about historical background with class discussion about assigned readings in translated primary source texts.

Requirements include class attendance, a mid-term examination, a final examination, and a short book review. Reading assignments will be drawn from a general textbook on East Asian history (title yet to be decided) and primary source readings on CTools.
