HIST 382: STEM in East Asian History

(1 Unit)
Prerequisite: Junior or senior standing or permission of instructor.
Explores the broad impacts of science, technology, environment, and medicine across East Asia from premodern periods to the present-day. We will investigate the ways in which the human body, space and place, and material-environmental interactions (ranging from manipulations of waterways to climate change) transformed East Asian and global histories. The course will focus on multidisciplinary, comparative approaches and topics including gendered forms of medicine and technology, regional and transnational environmental issues (natural, man-made, or both), and information flows between Asia and the world.
