Abstract:

This course compares regions, cultures, societies, and economies within and across the Pacific Basin. The course surveys the geography and history of this region, an increasingly important arena in world affairs. From various perspectives, the course also examines contemporary issues: economic relations, migration, regional institutions, globalization, democratization, transnationalism, and the environment in the Pacific Basin. The emphasis is on the increasing integration of the Asia-Pacific.

Introduction to Pacific Basin is meant to establish a basic foundation of knowledge for freshman, which students may draw on in their upper division courses on the Asia-Pacific. Study Abroad is a requirement of the university for graduation. Since many of the students will participate in Study Abroad in East Asia, either Beijing, Nanjing, Harbin, Tokyo, or Taipei, this Pacific Basin course serves as preparation for the Study Abroad semester.

The course is divided into three segments: the Age of Imperialism, the Age of Asian Nationalism, and the Age of Globalization. Although these divisions are somewhat arbitrary, students take away a sense of how the Pacific Basin has integrated in the last five centuries.

The course introduces to freshman the primary theoretical approaches—Realism, Liberal Institutionalism, and Constructivism—which they will encounter throughout their scholarly careers as undergraduates and graduate students.

The Introduction to Pacific Basin course is a 13-week course that utilizes numerous visuals to make the subject matter come alive--documentaries and photos in weekly PowerPoint presentations, as well as several textbooks. These visuals are stored on "Angel" [similar to "Blackboard"] and will be part of the presentation.
