Pirates, Traders, and Colonial Settlers in Maritime East Asia|
Spring 2022 not offered
Between the 17th and mid-20th centuries, Mariners, traders, and adventurers from different parts of the world converged on East Asia to profit from trade and military conflict. Situated at crossroads of global trade networks, port cities of Canton and Nagasaki, as well as the islands of Taiwan, Tsushima, and the Ryukyus, became sites of political contestation. This course looks at how pirates, traders, and colonial settlers in maritime East Asia reshaped the economic and political order of the modern world.
