Research Interest

  Dr. Gordon’s experience teaching world history at Shepherd has prompted his interest in comparing Asian and non-Asian figures, as when he composed an article for Comparative Civilizations Review regarding the ideas of Japanese philosopher Watsuji Tetsuro and Nigerian playwright Wole Soyinka, respectively. His Sun Yatsen: Seeking a Newer Chinawas published in July 2009 as a volume in Prentice Hall’s Library of World Biography series for world history courses. He has written several biographical essays for Education About Asia, a journal for educators seeking to increase Asia-related content in their courses. At present he is working on a comparison of the circumstances and policies of the Allied occupations of Japan and Germany, respectively, following World War II.
