Emory's connections with East Asia date back to the middle of the 19th century and are as diverse and fascinating as the people who forged them. Emory graduates Young John Allen (1836-1907) and William Patillo Turner (1864-1912) built lives as missionaries and educators in China and Japan;  Emory alumnus Yun Ch'i Ho (1865-1945), author of the Korean national anthem, distinguished himself as a minister and political reformer in Korea. Other alumni included teachers, reporters, diplomats, and travelers whose life work helped to enhance understanding between the US and East Asia. In this course we will continue the tradition of building knowledge of East Asia at Emory by exploring primary source materials held in the University's archives. Content will also include readings in secondary sources, class discussions, visits by guest speakers, and hands-on practice with research techniques in order to enjoy the experience of not only studying the history of Emory in East Asia, but also by contributing to its creation.
