Japan Before 1868: Society and Culture in Premodern Japanese History

HIST 260
Fall 2014
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: CEAS 260
Certificates: International Relations

This course examines the history of Japan roughly from the prehistoric age to 1868. With a broad-ranging observation covering politics, economy, society, culture, and foreign relations, students will take a look at a variety of historical events that the Japanese people experienced. Not only is to understand "what happened when" the goal of the course, but students will be exposed to how people at different historical stages saw the world around them. Major historical events, trends, ideas, and people will constitute the vital part of the course; however, students will also inquire into everyday life of ordinary people, whose names do not remain in historical records.
