The US has long pursued and maintained relations with countries in the Indo-Pacific. This unit will explore the history of US involvement in the region, including key turning points, actors, and policy debates from the China trade of the early 1800s to American colonization of the Philippines to twenty-first century conflicts involving tariffs and naval exercises. Students will examine a variety of questions about imperialism, immigration, trade, and military force through the perspectives of state actors, business owners, consumers, and labourers in the Indo-Pacific. In doing so, students will build analytical skills and bring historical perspectives to contemporary challenges.
