From Archipelago to Nation State: An Introduction to Japanese History and Culture
HIST 260
Spring 2008 not offered
Crosslisting: EAST 260

How did a string of islands on the eastern edge of the Eurasian landmass become today's Japan, an economic and cultural superpower? Starting with prehistoric times, this course looks as how the early cultures and peoples on the Japanese archipelago coalesce to become "Japan" for the first time in the late 7th century, and how those cultures and peoples adopt new identities, systems of power relations, and economies up to the present. This course reveals the big picture, but to understand it, the factual pixels that constitute it are examined in some detail.
