EAST ASIAN STUDIES

EAS 150B1 – Language, love, life: Study abroad to and from Asia
  • Tier 1 Individuals & Societies
  • Honors Contract
  • In the 21st century, East Asia and the rest of the world are more connected not only economically and politically, but also academically. This course focuses on the phenomenon of study abroad, both to and from East Asia. We begin by examining the trends and policies of study abroad related to East Asia. We then move to examine the culture shocks and social challenges study abroad students of face, and the linguistic and identity issues and benefits that study abroad may entail. We also focus on a variety of case stories (Chinese students overseas, international students in China, Japanese returnees, etc.), through which students will learn to critically analyze the phenomenon of study abroad.

    EAS 160A3 – Chinese Civilization
  • Gen Ed Diversity Emphasis
  • Tier 1 Traditions and Cultures
  • Introduces you to traditional Chinese civilization for the purposes of this course defined as: "the totality of a culture's perception of itself and the world it occupies and the ways in which that self-perception is expressed in society, politics, religion, philosophy, and the arts." The content of the course is arranged in thematic units, each unit being placed in the context of a specific historical period. We will examine the religious symbolism of ancient Chinese bronze vessels, Chinese theories of nature based on concepts like Yin and Yang, the great medieval religions of Taoism and Buddhism, and other topics. Over the semester you will learn to think more like the Chinese of centuries past to exercise your imagination, and to explore a world that is different from your own.

    EAS 222 – Introduction to Zen Buddhism
  • Cross Listed
  • This course is designed to introduce students to the history,teachings,and practice of Zen Buddhism in China,Japan, Korea and the United States. The course will discuss Zen from a variety of perspectives but will center around the question of the meaning of history. Zen is a tradition of Buddhism that claims to have inherited and to pass on, in an unbroken historical transmission from patriarch to patriarch, the living experience of the Buddha's enlightenment. The course will discuss how Zen's conception of its history is related to its identity as a special tradition within Buddhism, as well as its basic teachings on the primacy of enlightenment, the role of practice, the nature of the mind, and the limitations of language.

    EAS 351 – Zen, Tea, and Poetry: A Blending of Genres
  • Cross Listed
  • Honors Contract
  • Writing Emphasis Course
  • This course will examine how the three genres of Zen Buddhism, the tea ceremony/tea culture, and poetry, have been presented over time as not only compatible, but as representative expressions of each other. We will consider the contemporaneous cultural, historical, and political factors that contributed to the formation of this discourse. We will also hold up to critical scrutiny the very concept of "genre" in pre-modern East Asia, as well as the distinction between "Zen Buddhism" and what may be termed "Zen culture." We will also investigate in depth how modern commentators such as Okakura Tenshin, Suzuki Daisetsu, and Hisamatsu Shin'ichi's dialogue with the West and Western models informed the now ingrained idea that the tea ceremony represents an artistic, aesthetic, and spiritual nexus of the other two genres, and indeed of East Asian Culture as a whole.

    EAS 390 – Asian and Pacific Religions in American Spirituality
  • Cross Listed
  • Honors Contract
  • Writing Emphasis Course
  • Throughout the modern development of what has been called "spirituality" in the United States, Asian Pacific Americans along with Asian and Pacific Islander religions have been integral. In the mid-nineteenth century, Asian Pacific American (APA) immigrants brought their religions, and towards the end of the nineteenth century non-APAs enthusiastically brought APA religious teachers to the mainland United States. In the twentieth century, this mixture of APA people and religions continued to reach new communities and develop into independent US-based religions; eventually, these influenced the emergence of more individualistic, non-traditional forms of religion - popularly called 'spirituality.' These lines of influence crisscrossed over the decades, leading to a complex mixture of interests, investments, discourses, and depictions of different racial groups. As a result, this course's examination of Asian and Pacific religions in US-based spirituality engages questions about its definition in distinction to the term 'religion' and in relationship to the social dynamics of race. The course explores its presence in diverse locations such as medicine, theatre, environmental activism, and children's video games.

    CHN 345 – Buddhists, Bandits, and Beauties: Masterworks of Chinese Fiction from the 1500s to the Digital Age
  • Gen Ed Diversity Emphasis
  • Tier 2 Humanities
  • Honors Contract
  • Writing Emphasis Course
  • For centuries, Chinese people have thrilled to the adventures of characters such as the Monkey King, Lord Guan, and Wu Song the tiger killer. All of these stories are found in classic novels printed in sixteenth century. The exciting plots and plain-speech storyteller style of these novels have made them accessible in the original to readers even today. Increasingly, however, such stories have found fame throughout Asia and the world through popular culture and new media adaptations. In this course, we will examine both the originals (in translation) and the modern adaptations. We will explore the historical setting of the sixteenth- century Ming dynasty in which the novels were first created, as well as recent films and other cultural creations based on them. The aim will be to uncover the cultural dynamics that allow for such creativity and fluidity. Topics may include Chinese religions, print and popular culture, literary and cross-cultural adaptation, film, graphic novels/manga, video games, and taboos against sex and violence. Readings will be primarily in English; supplementary/alternative readings, including portions of the original texts as well as secondary scholarship, will be made available for readers of Asian languages upon request.

    CHN 376A – Contemporary China in Historical Perspective
  • Cross Listed
  • The People's Republic of China has emerged as the second largest economy in the world and a major player on the global stage, and that has quickly turned it into an object of both admiration and fear, appreciation and vilification. How we view China depends in part on our political leanings, what kind of media we consume, but, most importantly, on what we actually know about the country, its people, and its history. This course explores some of the most important issues concerning today's China and its relationship with the rest of the world, by viewing them in a longer historical perspective and focusing on the complex legacy of the last two hundred years. While we will adopt a historian's approach, we will read and use works by sociologists, anthropologists, and political scientists. And while the focus of the course is China, the methodology we deploy here can and should be applied to other cases.

    CHN 383 – Finding the Way in Life Introduction to Early Chinese Ethical Philosophy
  • Honors Contract
  • What is a good life? How does one make ethical choices? How do we create a just society? Two thousand years ago, amidst warfare and chaos, Chinese philosophers debated over the "Dao": the right Way to approach these critical questions. Whether one agrees with them or not--none of them fully agreed with one other--they offer a set of valuable perspectives that often challenge our assumptions and broaden our conceptions of a life worth pursuing. In this course, we will begin by unpacking the ways our contemporary culture tends to conceptualize the self, and how it has shaped our perception of agency and goals. We will then engage with early Chinese philosophers' debates on the conception of the self and human nature, and how it paves the foundation for their ethical and political teachings. In the next three units, we will explore Confucian and Daoist programs for self-cultivation and social transformation. We will also read Mohist and Legalist writings that argues for the state as the sole agent for creating an orderly society, in order to interrogate the consequences of such proposals. In the final weeks of this course, we will reflect on early Chinese philosophical writings as a whole, and how they enter into dialogue with the Western tradition of ethical philosophy. What can we learn from them? Do they change our conception of everyday life? What do we need to becritical of?

    KOR 245 – K-pop, Webtoons, Ethnic Food, and More: Understanding Korean Popular Culture
  • Tier 2 Individuals & Societies
  • In this course, we will explore our contemporary world through a lens of popular culture that has saturated our everyday life. In so many ways, we are spectators, be it movies, TV shows, popular music, animation, video games, etc. Sometimes, we go beyond being just spectators and actively engage in producing, circulating, and re-creating such cultural forms as fans or users. How does popular culture affect the way in which we see our world and define who we are? How do the values of cultural industries become the dominant economic logic of our era? How does popular culture interact with politics? This course will allow us to explore these questions. The focus on Korea will offer us unique contexts in which we situate our questions and answers. We will use our personal experiences as motivation to delve deeper into this topic and consider an extensive range of Korean pop culture from music to drama, cinema, online gaming, and Internet culture.

    EAS 160A3 – Chinese Civilization
  • Gen Ed Diversity Emphasis
  • Tier 1 Traditions and Cultures
  • Introduces you to traditional Chinese civilization for the purposes of this course defined as: "the totality of a culture's perception of itself and the world it occupies and the ways in which that self-perception is expressed in society, politics, religion, philosophy, and the arts." The content of the course is arranged in thematic units, each unit being placed in the context of a specific historical period. We will examine the religious symbolism of ancient Chinese bronze vessels, Chinese theories of nature based on concepts like Yin and Yang, the great medieval religions of Taoism and Buddhism, and other topics. Over the semester you will learn to think more like the Chinese of centuries past to exercise your imagination, and to explore a world that is different from your own.

  • This course introduces students to East Asia in pre-modern times -- its histories, cultures, literature, languages and scripts, and philosophies. While focusing primarily on China, Japan, and the Korean Peninsula, this course helps students understand what has been historically shared among these East Asian societies, and yet how East Asia has always been diverse and heterogeneous. In so doing, it also aims to engage students in debunking popular myths about East Asia -- particularly pre-modern East Asia -- as an exotic and homogeneous place, and understanding today's East Asia in its historical context.

    EAS 222 – Introduction to Zen Buddhism
  • Cross Listed
  • This course is designed to introduce students to the history,teachings,and practice of Zen Buddhism in China,Japan, Korea and the United States. The course will discuss Zen from a variety of perspectives but will center around the question of the meaning of history. Zen is a tradition of Buddhism that claims to have inherited and to pass on, in an unbroken historical transmission from patriarch to patriarch, the living experience of the Buddha's enlightenment. The course will discuss how Zen's conception of its history is related to its identity as a special tradition within Buddhism, as well as its basic teachings on the primacy of enlightenment, the role of practice, the nature of the mind, and the limitations of language.

    EAS 240 – Imagining the Buddha: Images of Buddhism in Asia and the West
  • Cross Listed
  • Gen Ed Diversity Emphasis
  • Tier 2 Arts
  • Honors Contract
  • What role do images play in the history, theory, and practice of Buddhism in Asia as well as in cultural encounters between Buddhism and Europe and the U.S.? Today art critics continue to discuss "Buddhist" elements in the work of iconic artists like Georgia O'Keefe and Mark Rothko, Tibetan mandala coloring books are being used for stress relief, and "Zen" aesthetics inform a broad range of fashion and design platforms. This course provides theoretical tools for critically reexamining the categories of "East" and "West" within this cultural moment. Considering how images of Buddhism have functioned across time and space for over two thousand years from its origins in India, robust expansion throughout Asia as well as transformations in colonial encounters, globalization, and immigration allows us to better comprehend how those categories were formed and perpetuated. The course explores the form of Buddhist images, their creation and use, and ritual contexts together with the senses of vision, materiality, and space and place they convey. It introduces a diverse range of key phenomena in sculpture, painting, and architecture such as early Indian sculptures of the Buddha, Chinese painted caves, Himalayan esoteric images of enlightened reality, Cambodian temple complexes, and portraits of Japanese Zen masters. The course reflects upon the lives of Buddhist images in Europe and the U.S. vis-à-vis art, architecture, film, and other visual media since the 19th century. In the process of learning to engage with the "images" of Budhism they encounter in their everyday lives, students are exposed to an interdisciplinary curriculum spanning the fields of art history, religious studies, and visual culture.

    EAS 250 – Introduction to Asian Pacific American Studies
    Asian American Studies is an interdisciplinary field that arose out of the shared concerns of students of Asian and Pacific Islander descent in the United States. Seeing that their universities had neglected Asian Pacific American (APA) perspectives, these students sought courses and research on the contribution of APAs to the United States. Accordingly, this course will introduce neglected and overlooked histories and perspectives of APAs. In the process, we will explore key issues in Asian American politics, racial formation, and culture. Themes includes identity, migration, class, gender, sexuality, panethnicity, youth culture, and social movements. Moreover, the process of unearthing hidden histories will provide practice for students of nearly any background to identify patterns of missing information and to formulate strategies to rediscover it.

  • Is Buddhism a tradition of healing? In what ways has Buddhism been involved in reviving, sustaining, and curing human individuals? This course explores relationships and encounters between Buddhism and the domains of religion, science, and medicine. It considers historical relationships between Buddhism and traditional medicine in Asia as well as contemporary Western discourses involving Buddhism in popular culture, psychology, and spirituality. Finally, it invites a critical approach to the current dialogue between Buddhism and science. In the process, it reveals hidden assumptions behind commodifying `mindfulness' and the quest to document the therapeutic impact of meditation upon health, happiness, and success in the modern age. Students will have the opportunity to apply the ideas they have learned through analysis of relevant initiatives at the U of A such as the Neuropsychology, Emotion, and Meditation [NEM] Lab and the Center for Compassion Studies as well as of broader Tucson community events like the Gem Show.

Students will read "proper" historical texts: political and intellectual essays, government documents, social reports, and scholarly historical monographs. These will be juxtaposed to different forms of narrative construction: movies, novels, and autobiographical accounts. With this integrated approach, the course examines the history of the People's Republic of China but also the continuous interplay between historiography and politics, history and memory, popular culture and learning.

    CHN 485 – Chinese Sociolinguistics
  • Cross Listed
  • The overarching goals of this course are two-fold. First, it aims to introduce students to the continuity as well as heterogeneity of the Chinese language(s) in the Sinophone world, including not only Mainland China but Taiwan and Hong Kong as well. Through highlighting issues related to language variation and change, and their relationship to social identity, the course is intended to guide students to understand the complex interaction between linguistic practices and social stratification as well as cultural changes. It focuses on sociolinguistic aspects that are particularly salient to Chinese, such as language and dialect, place, gender, pragmatics, cross-cultural communication, as well as language policy and planning. Secondly, this course strives to provide students with a comparative approach by incorporating studies on Chinese sociolinguistic and those based on other languages such as English. In so doing, it hopes to encourage the students to reflect upon their everyday linguistic experience here in Tucson and compare that with what is happening in the Sinophone world.

    JPN 355 – From Godzilla to Hello Kitty! US-Japan Popular Culture
  • Honors Contract
  • Throughout the contemporary era, the United States' popular culture has spread abroad, including to Japan. After the American Occupation of Japan, Japanese popular culture began to spread to the United States, notably in film and animation. From this point onward, both nations' popular cultures have mutually influenced each other and in some cases created crossovers, where Japanese popular culture would be recreated in the United States and United States' popular culture would be recreated in Japan. This course takes a cultural studies approach to the rich exchange of these pieces of hybrid popular culture and the social, political, cultural, and sometimes violent forces that undergird them, along with the real lives affected by these forces. It will reflect on the original context of the popular culture in the United States or Japan, its recontextualization and translation in the other country, and in some cases further iterations of this process. Themes include war, Orientalism, horror, the radical Other, and entertainment industries. Media include film, theatre, animation, toys, haunted houses, and origami.

  • How do we know what is good for us, who gets to decide, and how does "healthy" change over time? This seminar explores these basic questions through the lens of Japanese food culture: the dietary trends, choices, and ideas of proper consumption that help shape the relationship between people's bodies and the world around them. We will discuss how and why "eating right" became such an important issue in Japan from the seventeenth century to the present and ask what the everyday experience of eating can tell us about the core themes, concepts, and events in Japanese and East Asian history. By putting Japanese foodways in conversation with global gastronomy, we will investigate what makes food "cultural" and what makes it historical.

Each week explores a different key theme in the social and cultural atmosphere of Japan under Tokugawa rule to provide a holistic view of life during the "Great Peace." Topics include the emergence of order from a time of instability and upheaval, exchange and tensions with the outside world and between social groups, and the political stakes of Edo's flowering popular culture. Class discussions will also provide an overview of the latest English-language scholarship on the Edo period to familiarize advanced undergraduates and graduate students with the styles of research and interpretation that inform our understanding of Japanese history today. We will pay particular attention to the major epochs in historiography and how their unique concerns influenced the diverse meanings attributed to Edo Japan over the last half century.

    KOREAN

    KOR 101 – Elementary Korean I
    This is the first of two half courses making up a full-year elementary level Korean course that is designed for learners of Korean with no previous (or very limited) knowledge of the language. The objective of the course is to help students to be active Korean language users who are linguistically and culturally equipped to communicate successfully in the 21st century. In order to do so, this course is designed around the five Cs: Communication, Cultures, Connections, Comparisons, and Communities. The course will be conducted using a communicative language teaching approach integrating all four language skills - listening, speaking, reading, and writing - and the five Cs by utilizing the required textbook, workbook, and authentic materials. This course will first introduce the Korean Alphabet Hangul as well as the sound system of standard Korean. It will focus on writing the Korean alphabet and reading basic words, phrases, and sentences correctly. The latter part of this course will focus on grammatical patterns such as basic sentence structures and word order, assuming that students have no previous (or very limited) knowledge of Korean. In addition, students will be exposed to everyday life situations likely to be encountered in contemporary Korean society.

    KOR 251 – Introduction to Korea through Films
  • Gen Ed Diversity Emphasis
  • Tier 2 Humanities
  • This course offers a thematic introduction to Korea using film as a window to Korean society. Korea has experienced a compressed modernity in reaction to complex international dynamics, which include colonialism, the Cold War, and globalization. Its rich historical and social particularities have been a valuable source for cultural products such as film production. Film enables us to see beyond our own experiences and reflect on our world and other people's lives through various aesthetic mediations. Through the medium of film, students will be able to learn about the country through vivid imagery. This course will also allow students to understand important issues related to class, gender, capitalism, and democracy that our contemporary world is facing using Korean films to illustrate these key concerns.

    KOR 352 – Class, Gender, and Family in Korea
  • Tier 2 Individuals & Societies
  • Honors Contract
  • Writing Emphasis Course
  • This course aims to allow students to learn about Korea using the three focuses of class, gender, and family. Reading ethnographic literature will be a tool to understand how class, gender, and family have been formed in Korea. Korea has transformed from one of the world's poorest agriculturally based countries to a postindustrial country in a very short time period. More than 80% of the entire population redefined itself as middle class, which shows Korean people's strong desire for upward mobility. Family has played an important role in realizing upward mobility and forming a middle-class identity. The gender-division of labor based on the separation between public and private spheres has functioned as an effective system for fast economic development while deepening gender discrimination. Marginalization of women has resulted in the abnormal growth of the private sphere where an extremely competitive education system and real estate speculation have been formed as family strategies for upward mobility. The particularity of Korean modernity can be found in the process of the interwoven formation of class, gender, and family.
