Challenging the western-centric gaze, this course invites students to reconsider patterns of global power and to listen to voices of resistance in both East and West Asia. Topics include imperial Japan and its twilight, the fallout of empire in Korea and China, the pinnacle and collapse of the Ottoman Empire, and history and power in the Persian Empire. Authors may include Kazuo Ishiguro, Teresa Hak Kyung Cha, Orhan Pamuk, and Shahranush Parsipur.
