Japan Since 1868: Society and Culture in Modern Japanese History

HIST 207
Spring 2020 not offered
Crosslisting: CEAS 265
Certificates: International Relations, International Relations Minor
Course Cluster: Urban Studies

This course examines the history of Japan from roughly 1800 to the present. With a broad-ranging observation covering politics, economy, society, culture, and foreign relations, we will look at a variety of historical events that the Japanese people experienced. Our goal is not only to understand what happened when, but also to be concerned with 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, we will also inquire into everyday life of ordinary people, whose names do not remain in historical records. We will use a wide range of materials including written sources available in the English language, films, literature, and comics.
