An introduction to the comparative study of social, political, and intellectual modernity in East Asia and the North Atlantic. The course will examine the characteristics of East Asian modernity with much emphasis on the relationship between colonialism and modernity. We will focus on the problems of historical time and language, and read the philosophical and sociological works of the 20th century in order to understand the ways in which cultural activities and the modalities of identification were transformed during the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries. The questions of the civilizing mission and national subjectivity will play central roles in this course.
