HistoryHIS 142 History of Hong Kong and Taiwan: Two Peripheries of China

Studies the history of two peripheries of China, Hong Kong and Taiwan, from the earliest written records to the present. These two places were at various times part of China, and, to some, are still parts of China. However, these two have historical trajectories distinct from China and have developed their unique positions in the world. This course invites students to think about Taiwan and Hong Kong, not only their local histories and development, but also their role as two peripheries of China in Chinese nationalism and in U.S-China relations.
