China and Japan in Wartime, 1936-1945: War Experiences Through Literature

This free asynchronous seven-week special topics course will consider a sampling of short stories and poetry written during and in the aftermath of WWII by Chinese and Japanese writers capturing experiences and memories of war in each country. The course consists of three two-week modules: war on the battlefield, war on the home front, and women’s experiences of WWII. All selections are in English translation and most appropriate for high school use; middle and high school educators welcome to apply, however. Participants will be given access to all of the course materials and will also receive complimentary copies of Modern Chinese History by David Kenley and Japan and Imperialism, 1853-1945 by James L. Huffman.
