Transnational Confucianism


This course examines the multiple transnational developments of Confucianism as religious, political, and cultural traditions from the eighteenth century to the twentieth-first century, both in Asia and beyond. Historically Confucianism has taken a strong hold in East Asia for centuries, leaving distinct legacies in China, Korea, and Japan. But it has also been having significant impact in Southeast Asia, especially in Vietnam, Singapore, Indonesia, and Malaysia. In the turn towards the twentieth-first century, we see new developments not only in countries where Confucianism has previously left strong impressions, but also in other parts of the world, such as the United States.
