Modern Korean History (3) This course seeks to understand Korea's historical experience of modern transformation from the mid-nineteenth century to the present, with a special emphasis on the post-1945 contemporary era. After a turbulent, humiliating, and subjectively painful experience of modern century, from a unitary Confucian state, to a colony of Japan, and a divided nation, Korea still keeps its own distinct culture, identity, and strong nationalism. By highlighting major events in Korea's modern century, including the opening of the country and the fall of the Choson Dynasty, colonial Korea, and post-1945 division of the country, the course analyzes and evaluates the major historical and socio-cultural themes, concepts, and controversies. The evolution of the historical narratives and interpretations in this modern century is addressed in the discussion. Meets with HIST-396 001.

Facing the crisis of democracy in our society, the course explores a new way of envisioning democracy in our time through a comparative study of Eastern and Western ways of understanding individual, society, and their interaction through political systems.
