This no-cost, six-week course will look at the Asian warriors that go beyond the stereotypes often prevalent amongst students (and maybe even us). The course will utilize two historical-fiction graphic novels, one memoir, and several supplemental biographical introductory readings. We will read the memoir Musui’s Story written by a Japanese samurai; the graphic novel Saints based on the Boxer Rebellion in China by Gene Luen Yang; and Boxers, also based on the Boxer Rebellion in China by Gene Luen Yang. Supplementary readings will focus on additional real people from history who do not fit the common stereotypical mold. This course will be 100% online with weekly readings, discussion posts, and supplemental materials. Whether you are new to these topics, or already well versed, there is something for everyone. Texts are available for purchase on Amazon.
