Today we will be working with a partner on two interrelated tasks:
First, you will visually map Japanese imperialism through 1931 (before the Manchurian Incident).
Second, you will provide annotations to your map focusing on how people with varying views, social backgrounds, and nationalities might have felt about Japan’s expanding reach. Your annotations should aim to use evidence from our readings (especially from Huffman) to decenter our narrative by turning our focus away from Japan’s political, military, and economic elites.
Annotations may be handwritten or typed. If typed, please print them, cut them out, and attach them to your map before the beginning of next class.
