Type of Course: Residential Seminars and Summer Institutes

Course Description: What do sources from and about merchants, pirates, diplomats, missionaries, soldiers, and artists tell us about early modern East Asia? Examining various transborder institutions, practices, and people that contributed to the formation of the interconnected East Asian world (1271-1842), this four-day institute offers secondary teachers an opportunity to work with scholars and specialists to consider East Asia as a system that included but transcended the collective national histories of China, Japan, and Korea. In this institute, teachers will gain an understanding of the political, economic, and cultural systems of the early modern East Asian world and reconsider narratives of encounters and conflicts with European imperialist powers.
