The Challenge of the Introductory Course on the Pacific Basin
Unformatted Document Text:  Challenges of the Pacific Basin Course Challenges of the Pacific Basin Course • Materials focused on nation-states, nationalism; Pacific Century textbook does not capture trans-nationalism and regional integration; • Teachers focused on nation-states, nationalism; had identity, emotional & ideological commitments to one particular nation-state —Japan, S. Korea or China • Although course subject matter transcends disciplines, when taught by ‘non-experts’ in the past, each professor emphasized own discipline, producing distinctly different courses—students confused • Emphasis on the East Asian economic miracle & East Asian developmental state; non-East Asian countries, export markets and raw material sources, were treated as non-essential • Overly focused on Confucianist societies & Confucianism as a source of economic prosperity, marginalizing Islamic Asian countries & treating Christian Asians as “the other.” • Overly focused on East Asian states & societies, excluding the larger Asia-Pacific region; this would facilitate the Pacific Century becoming an Asian Century which justified East Asian regionalism
