First, locate a primary source related to some aspect of modern East Asian history in an East Asian or European language (or translated) that you can read. (If the language is other than Korean, English, or French, you will have to provide a translation of it.) Of course, the source may be a visual or material object. If it is a text, usually shorter sources work better. You may not use a primary source assigned as required readings for the course. Second, you will analyze this source and what it shows about an incident or period or theme in modern East Asian history. Remember, your job is to analyze your chosen source, not to write an essay about the topic to which it relates. Your analysis should cover the following points: who produced it, when, where, in what circumstances; who the intended audience for it was, and what the tone is; what the intention of its author[s]/producer[s] was; what we can learn today about that period of history/event/trend. Finally, include reference to two scholarly works (books or articles) related to the primary source you have chosen. Include them as two separate footnoted citations, with a page number. No more than two footnotes, one for each source.
