Primary Instructor:

This course is designed as an introduction to aspects of the history and culture of Japan. We will examine translations of primary documents, selected critical essays and visual materials (including film) both to engage with representations of moments of Japan's history, but also to raise a series of questions regarding the methods of cultural analysis per se. Thus, the aim of this course is two-fold:

  1. to analyze selected aspects of the cultural history of "Japan," and
  2. to critically reflect on the act of analysis itself.
