University of Western Ontario Department of History History 1601E (History of East Asia) 2016-2017 Lectures: Tuesdays 2:30-4:30 P.M. Location: Talbot College 141 Instructor: Cary S. Takagaki Office: Stevenson/Lawson Hall, room 2244 Telephone: (519) 661-2111, extension 80155 e-mail: [email protected] / [email protected] Office hours: Tuesdays 1:00-2:15 P.M. Course Description: This course considers the historical development of China, Korea and Japan. Although each is an independent nation, the course emphasizes the point that the histories of these civilizations are intertwined, and that no single East Asian nation, society, or culture can be fully understood without reference to its neighbours. Course Requirements: —tutorials (15%) —written assignment (3-5 pages), due November 15, 2016 (5%) —book review (5 pages), due February 28, 2017 (10%) —research essay (8-10 pages), due April 4, 2017 (20%) —term test, October 25, 2016 (10%) —registrar set mid-term exam: date TBA (15%) —registrar set final exam: date TBA (25%) NOTE: all written assignments must be submitted in printed form to the instructor, and in electronic format to ‘turnitin.com’. All written assignments are also subject to an oral review before marks are assigned. Students must keep a copy of their assignments for their own records, as well as notes and drafts, and be prepared to submit them if requested. No electronic devices will be allowed during tests or exams. Penalties: It is customary in an university setting to impose penalties for late submission of written assignments in order to be “fair” to those students who have made the effort to submit material on time. Accordingly, late assignments will be penalized 2% per day unless prior arrangements have been made with the instructor or a valid medical excuse is provided. A make-up term test is allowed if the student has a valid excuse (this usually entails a note from a physician). However, be aware that make-up tests will be more difficult than the regular one on the premise that, (i) the more obvious questions get used in the regular test, and (ii) the student will have had more time to study than the rest of the class. Since the mid-term test and the final exam are administered by the registrar, any issues concerning a make-up mid-term or final exam must be directed to the Office of the Registrar. Required Texts:

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
