In the year of UM’s Bicentennial, it is important to recognize the long tradition of Asian Studies—both in sense of the study of Asia as well as the sense of Asian students studying at Michigan. The course will survey this long history, beginning with President James Angell’s mission to China, continuing through the central role played by the University during the Second World War, to the founding of “Area Studies” at Michigan, and up to the present day, where Asia and Asian students are central to the identity of the University.
