Course Description

This course is divided into three parts. First, you’ll learn how the Chinese World Order emerged in the ancient world, focusing on the concept of the "heavenly mandate" (天命) as the ultimate source of political power (1 module). You’ll also learn how the Chinese World Order expanded into the relationship between China and surrounding political entities (1 module) and several challenges when the Qing (淸) Empire replaced the Ming (明) Empire.

Second, this course will review how China tried to project its world order into the relationship with Korea and Korea came to be integrated into the Chinese World Order from the 14th century to the 18th century (4 modules). More specifically, it will show how China intervened in the interstate trade and Korean music.

More specifically, it will show how China intervened in the interstate trade and Korean music. 

Finally, it will compare the two trajectories of political thoughts between Korea and Japan since 17th century. Korea fantasized itself as the genuine heir and center of the Chinese World Order, closing its door to foreigners. Meanwhile, Japan overcame the Chinese World Order and eventually converted itself as a modern state (1 module).

The working language is Korean with English subtitles.

The course provided a historical perspective on Korea's diplomatic efforts in dealing with Japan and China. The material was somewhat dry, but competently delivered.

Poor content and poorly delivered. The Professor was not approachable or even able to answer important questions on the course. It was obvious that no TA or so on was actually on this course. The content was fine but very broad and vague. No recommended books were given even though asked for. Many other EDX courses have extensions as people do confuse deadlines. This course didn't. The first time it did. This seriously hindered some of the actual students who did the work properly not writing weird one liners that made no sense (but who will get full marks regardless for handing something.) Overall this course is propagandist, no pointers to other resources given and no flexibility or help. DO not do these topics. Read a book such as anything by Bruce Cumings on Korean history.

Poorly run and with no feedback. Questions regarding the course were not answered, some very important. No help regarding finding other resources. Course was done at time of year when many people are busy or have exams etc, some flexibility would have been good, if anything for the first 2 weeks which many people missed or got confused with the due date. I found the course was also propagandist. Overall poorly run, poor content and poor instruction. Shouldn't be allowed on EDX
