This unit will focus on conflicts in Asia in the 20th century. It will explore contested histories and memories of these conflicts, including those of current political/strategic importance such as Chinese-Japanese tensions over remembering the Second World War, the legacies of imperialism and war in Korea and Taiwan, and Indonesian difficulties in remembering the mass killings of 1965. It encourages students to view the work of historians in the context of public interest, and in the related context of the project of contemporary history – the unfinished business of the past.
