EASTASN 104: Western Music & Politics in Modern China (EASTASN 204)

Western classical music first came to China 400 years ago. Since its arrival, it has almost always served a non-musical purpose - missionaries used it to convert, emperors to impress, intellectuals to change China, and Communists as a propaganda tool. Over the years, Western music has become so closely intertwined with Chinese politics that the two are often hard to separate and each has affected the other's development in remarkable ways. This seminar will survey the history of Western music in China and its close association with domestic politics and international diplomacy. It is designed for students interested in social history, cultural studies, China studies, international relations and music. We will listen to music but a musical background is not required or expected.

EASTASN 189K: The Korean Economy: Past, Present and Future (EASTASN 289K)

The Republic of Korea (i.e. Korea) has become an exemplar of economic development, and has become an important player in the global manufacturing, technology and cultural industries. Today, Korea faces new challenges as a developed economy, and risks joining many other developed countries in economic stagnation. How has Korea developed its economy and how has its development trajectory affected its social, political and economic structures today? How can Korea mobilize its considerable resources to find the new engines of economic growth that have proven so elusive over the past decade? This course examines the past and present of the Korean economy to search for a pathway into the future, a challenge that many if not most developed economies are facing today.
