HIEA 150 – Modern Korea, 1800-1945: The Peninsula in an Age of Empire (Winter 2011) Warren Lecture Hall (WLH) 2205 Tuesday and Thursday, 9:30-10:50 AM Instructor : Todd A. Henry, PhD Email : tahenry@ucsd.edu Office Office Hours : Tuesday 11:00 AM-1:00 PM, or by appointment Course Description One way of understanding Korea’s entrance into the world of nation-states is to study how imperialism influenced the development of modernity on the peninsula. In this course, we will examine how a wide spectrum of Korean men, women, and children walked the perilous path of “becoming modern” amidst waves of foreign interventions during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Through a broad range of textual and audio-visual sources, we will focus on specific encounters where Korean actors rejected, deflected, and even embraced various manifestations of empire (missionary Christianity, Qing imperialism, Japanese colonialism and, finally, American militarism) in the creation of their own modernity. Books for Purchase and Online Materials Peter H. Lee, Sources of Korean Tradition: From the Sixteenth to the Twentieth Centuries Hildi Kang, Under the Black Umbrella: Voices from Colonial Korea, 1910-45 All other course materials can be accessed online through WebCT 1
