This is an introduction to the civilizations of China, Japan, Korea, and Inner Asia. It aims to provide an overview of changing traditions from ancient to early modern times (ca. 1660 AD) by outlining broad trends which not only transformed each society, economy, and culture but also led to the development of this region into distinctly different modern nations. The development of state Confucianism, the spread of Buddhism, the functions of the scholar and the warrior, the impact of the military empires of Inner Asia, and the superiority of pre-modern Asian science and technology are some of the topics we will cover. In addition to the required textbooks, we will read contemporary accounts and view slides and films to acquire intimate appreciation of these cultures. Course requirements include successful completion of: quizzes given in sections; four major tests given in class; one report/project (5 pp. plus bibliography and notes).

Southeast Asia is one of the world's most culturally diverse regions, home to Buddhist, Muslim, Confucian, and Christian civilizations. It boasts ancient monuments of surpassing grandeur and symbolic complexity. It was the scene of the bloodiest conflict since 1945, the Vietnam War. Until recently it had the world's fastest growing regional economy, and it remains an area of great importance to Japan as well as the United States. This course offers an introduction (and thus assumes no prior knowledge) to Southeast Asian history from the earliest civilizations, through the colonial conquest, the indigenous political reaction of which Vietnamese Communism and the Vietnam Wars were one expression and the contemporary economic scene. The course seeks to define Southeast Asia's uniqueness as well as its evolving ties to the rest of the world. Midterm, final, and optional paper. Two lectures, one discussion section per week.

A survey of early American history from the period of initial colonization through the Civil War. The course will be organized around the interactions of the three dominant cultures which came together in early America: Native American, European, and African. We will explore the internal dynamics of each culture (family life, religious beliefs, political system, labor arrangements, gender roles) and how the clash of cultures shaped the experience of Americans in the colonial and national periods. Specific topics will include the problems of forming communities in an alien environment, the transition to slave labor and the origins of an African-American society, the American Revolution and the creation of the republic, the emergence of sectionalism, and the impact of early industrialism. Students will attend two lectures each week, and read a series of monographs and primary documents. A short paper and a final exam are required.

What are the forces that have shaped contemporary America? This course will attempt to answer this question by focusing on such topics as the meaning of race, class, gender and ethnicity in American society, foreign policy in the twentieth century, patterns in economic development, the urbanization and suburbanization processes, and the politics and meaning of liberalism and conservatism in recent America. Themes that will be traced through these years will include the tensions between altruism and self interest in domestic and foreign policy, between unity and diversity in the population, and between the market and the government as institutions to allocate resources. Students will attend two lectures and a section meeting each week, take midterm and final examinations, and complete an additional writing assignment. Readings will include a textbook and about a half a dozen other paperbacks including novels, autobiographies, and synthetic overviews of aspects of American history.

Credits: (4).

Course Homepage: No Homepage Submitted.

"The Writing of History" sections offer students the opportunity to learn writing through the study of historical texts, debates, and events. Each section will study a different era, region, and topic in the past, for the common purpose of learning how history is written and how to write about it. Students will read the work of modern historians as well as documents and other source materials from the past, such as historical novels, letters, diaries, or memoirs. In each case the goal will be to learn how to construct effective arguments, and how to write college-level analytic papers. History 195 satisfies the first-year writing requirement. Each section will enroll a maximum of twenty students.

This first-year seminar takes the lives of labor leader Walter Reuther, Black nationalist Malcolm X, and feminist Betty Friedan as entry points into the history of the United State in the second half of the twentieth century. We will read the speeches and writings of each figure and follow the course of their lives and politics through biography. In addition, we will read more broadly (in both primary and secondary material) about the social and political worlds in which each of these figures evolved: the working-class industrial cities of mid-century America, the labor movement, African American communities in the rural south and the urban north, the civil rights and Black power movements, second-wave feminism, etc. Our objective is not to see these figures as "great" men and women, but to use their lives as starting points for critical inquiry into social inequality, social movements, and social life in modern America.

Rescued at an execution ground, the deceased overlord's look-alike was fitted into the role of "kagemusha" (Shadow Warrior). Now the pillar of the Takeda house and guardian of its strength and honor, the former thief viewed the world from new heights. We will see the film, KAGEMUSHA, and explore the historical time and place in which this shadow warrior found himself. The course investigates the social and political meanings of the "country-at-war (sengoku)," Japan's age of turmoil (16th C) which continues to stimulate the creative imagination of film directors, novelists, and tour organizers. The course also examines the evolution of the samurai class over a millennium before and after our Shadow Warrior's time. Aspects to be considered include technology and social meanings of wars and battles, economic development and classes, education and cultural accomplishments, gender relations, and the movement toward pacification. Students are evaluated on the basis of: class attendance and participation, occasional quizzes, and five three-page papers. Cost: approximately $100.00

The nineteenth century saw the emergence of a variety of new fields of knowledge. Philosophy, archaeology, anthropology, and comparative religion were among such new fields, and part of what has come to be known collectively as "human sciences." Meanwhile, "history" also became an academic discipline; it was no longer an incidental gathering of anecdotal knowledge about the past, but instead, a rigorous and methodic form of research purporting to establish certain facts about the past. It was also during this period that the university became "modern," as it became the quintessential abode and superlative organ of science, research, and scholarship. In this seminar we will study the historical processes that shaped these and other modern institutions of knowledge, in part in order to reflect on the nature and the purposes of the university education today.

Prerequisites & Distribution: (3). (SS).

Credits: (3).

Course Homepage: No Homepage Submitted.

This course explores the pre-colonial African past, from the early prehistory of the human to the eve of Europe's second great wave of empire when Africans across most of the continent became the subjects of European colonies. The second European empires (from roughly the 1870s through the 1960s) have had profound influence on Africa, yet important global forces were affecting Africa long before the mid-nineteenth century. Moreover, the shapes that Africa would take under the influence of European empire would be strongly conditioned by the course of change on the continent before 1850 and by the nature of society and culture on the continent stretching back for more than a millennium.

The major objective of this course is to establish a deeper understanding of the forces, institutions, and processes that underlay the experiences of Africans and the African continent before 1850. The post-1850 history of Africa will be taken up by Professor Diouf during the second term, in History 247.

Over the past five decades, the reconstruction of the African past from archaeological evidence, from oral testimonies, and from historical linguistics and from other methods and materials has been one of the most remarkable departures in the historical sciences, taking the professional craft of history beyond its signature: the written document. Of course, the peoples of Africa long enjoyed a rich knowledge of their past and a deep engagement with history, well before the emergence of the professional practice of history on the continent. And a critical factor in the shaping of Africa's futures has been the production and control of histories for and about the continent.

Albeit the breakthroughs in the reconstruction of Africa's past, and albeit the importance of historical knowledge to Africans, Africa is substantially "known" today by those outside Africa, by the international press, by the aid and development and the human rights communities through a shallow and relatively presentist understanding, partially based on direct observation, partially based on persistent and pervading myths and fantasies about Africa, myths that have their own significant histories. The course will encourage a more complex understanding of Africa and a sense of African history as a work-in-progress.

The course will explore:

  • Africa's earliest history
  • The histories and fates of pre-colonial empires, kingdoms, and states across the continent
  • The shapes of African culture and society
  • The Atlantic slave trade and its impacts on Africa
  • The rise of Islam in Africa
  • The relations of Europe and Africa before the second European empires
  • Basic conditions of life in pre-colonial Africa
  • African modernities before "modernity"

Among the main questions, the recurrent questions:

  • Africa's Past: How has it come to be known, understood, comprehended, explained?
  • Africa's Cultures: The utility of models of continuity and change?
  • Africa's Civilizations: The ethics of autocracy and domination?
  • Africa's Connections to the Wider World: Determined or negotiated?
  • Africa's Economies: The fates of value and equity in extractive economies?
  • Africa's Resources: Whose materials, to what use, to what effect?

The course will be organized around lectures, readings, discussions, the viewing of several films from Africa.

Course requirements:

  1. Participation in class discussion. 15%.
  2. A critical book review of a monograph from the "recommended list" three to four pages. 25%.
  3. Midterm exam. 25%.
  4. Final exam constructed, in essay form, around the "recurrent questions" above. 35%.

An introduction to the formation of the early Atlantic world from the voyages of Christopher Columbus to the expeditions of Walter Raleigh. This course compares English French, Spanish, Portuguese and Native American experiences. Special attention is given to the letters and diaries of Columbus, Cortes, Cartier, Gilbert, Raleigh, and Champlain, as well as a selection of Indian texts. The course highlights integrative themes common to European, African and Indian encounters with and in the Americas, encounters that knit together a larger, newer community: the exploring, mixing, and settling of peoples and races; the emergence of viable trans-Atlantic commercial systems; a groping towards a balance of power among European states; and the exchange and advancement of knowledge.

This course will examine the American experience of war in this century. Lectures, readings, films, and discussions will focus not only on the military experience itself, but on how America's wars real and imagined have shaped the country's economy, politics, and culture. The course will also examine the processes of transmission and memory: how Americans who did not fight learned about those who did, and what all Americans have remembered or have been taught to remember about the wars of this century. Finally, we will consider how the nation's wartime conduct, at home and on the battlefield, has fit into long-standing social patterns and behavior such as our alleged propensity for violence. In brief, we will be looking at the American experience of war as inclusively as a term will allow.

From devastating infectious epidemics to the quiet suffering of malnutrition, health problems have both affected and reflected the evolution of modern society. The course will study four different historical periods, exploring such issues as: the effects of individual habits, environmental conditions, and medical innovation on public health; the role of ethics, economics, and politics in medical decision making; the changing health problems of the disadvantaged, including Native Americans, women, Blacks, immigrants, and workers; the changing meaning of concepts like "health," "disease," "cause," and "cure"; the dissemination and impact of medical discoveries; and the changing organization and power of the healing professions. We will focus on American history, although comparisons will be drawn to other societies. The course is a basic introduction, however, first-year students must obtain permission of the professor to enroll. Classes are taught in lecture format, and will include a variety of audio-visual sources. Reading assignments will range from modern histories to poetry and old medical journals. There will be two essay-style examinations, and frequent short quizzes. This is a challenging and demanding course. Those who miss the first meeting without advance permission will be dropped from the course.

The enterprise of science changed dramatically after WWII, both intellectually and socially. The consequences of being able to split the atom and, more recently, to engineer biological blueprints have made science literally a life and death activity that touches every human. This course will explore the growth and implications of scientific and technological development from the end of WWII to the present. There will be two lectures and one discussion per week. Students will work in small groups on one problem during the term, e.g., energy, pollution, global warming, health care issues. Each group will hand in a jointly written report at the end of term and present a class report. Three or four books will be assigned reading. Students will be expected to make use of e-mail and conferencing.

This course traces Eastern Christianity from the 4th through the 18th century. A broad survey course aimed at undergraduates of all concentrations, there are no prerequisites; the course focuses on both Church history and theology. It begins with Constantine's conversion and traces the growth of the Church, the rise of monasticism, the creation of the creed (the Councils of Nicea and Chalcedon), and the secession of the Eastern churches (Coptic and Syriac), the role of religious pictures and the iconoclast dispute and relations with the West (Rome) which were frequently strained before the official break in the 11th century. We cover the conversion of the Slavs and the eventual formation of independent Slavic national churches. We treat the fall of the Byzantine and Medieval Slavic states to the Turks and the position of the Orthodox under the Turks. Attention is also given to the Russian Church from the 9th century to the Old Believer schism and Church reforms of Peter the Great. Readings are varied. There is no textbook. A relevant paper of the student's choice, an hour exam, and a final are required.

How did we get here? What's going on? Where are we going with this? These questions define the physical sciences, and this course examines the history of the ways and means, human, observational, experimental, and theoretical, that astronomers and physicists have used to answer them. The course begins with what has been called the "Scientific Revolution," with Galileo and the Inquisition, but quite rapidly we come to the nineteenth century, and the heart of the course is on the development of our study of the universe, its origin, structure, and future, during the last few generations. Among topics we shall consider are the financing of science, the politics and security implications of modern research, history of computers, the roles of women, the geographical and cultural spread of research, popularization and demonization of science, pseudo-science, and the various contexts of science, in addition to the development of research and thought. So this is a history, and not a science, course, although many of the readings will come from scientists themselves, and our discussions will be centered on the human history rather than on the science itself.

In 1945 Europe lay in ruins. Entire cities had been leveled by the destructive powers of modern warfare, and the cultural, political, and social norms of the pre-war world had been shattered. What made such violence possible, and how did ordinary men and women experience it? History 318 will explore the ideological, political, economic, social, and cultural forces that both caused and were destroyed by the savagery of the early 20th century. We will not only study the origins and consequences of World Wars I and II, but also the ways in which everyday life was transformed during this turbulent era. We will look at Europe from the inside (by studying relations of class, gender, and nationality), and from the outside (by tracing the ideology and practice of imperialism). Grading will be based on a midterm and a final exam, on active participation in a discussion section, and on two take-home essay assignments.

This course will examine British culture and politics from the death of Queen Victoria through the Second World War, with particular attention to the nature and structure of politics and the state; the First World War and the processes through which the war experience of mass participation and trauma were understood; cultural and political debates in the interwar years; the growth of mass media; gender; the empire and colonial subjects; the Great Depression; British politics during the rise of Nazi and fascist governments in Europe; and the experience of the Blitz and World War II. Students will be asked to think critically about the various means by which national and personal stories are constituted, repressed, re-imagined, and deployed in debates about the meaning and uses of the past. Readings and other course materials will include autobiographies, novels, films, and photographs, and class sessions will include extensive discussion. No previous knowledge of British history will be assumed or required.

We will also look at the shifting uses of land and labor,and at the importance of class, race, gender, and ethnicity. The method of instruction is lecture and discussion. Each student will write a short critical review and a final paper of approximately 10 to 12 pages. There will be a midterm and a final. Readings will include works by Inga Clendinnen, Nancy Farris, Karen Spalding and Charles Gibson, as well as primary materials from Aztec and Spanish sources.

America, one historian has remarked, is a nation of words. In this lecture course we will examine some of the words and concepts that have been central within American culture from the Enlightenment to World War II and how they have been articulated, debated, instantiated, and used at a variety of times and by a variety of people. Our approach, derived from the cultural history of ideas, will examine not just the world of thinking, but how those thoughts get translated into doing and making, and in the process are themselves transformed.

Our reading will include such major figures as Thomas Jefferson, Harriet Beecher Stowe, William James, and Langston Hughes, as well as a host of less well known writers, scientists, political thinkers, popular commentators and the like. We will focus throughout, however, as much on how the words are used in producing arguments, laws, social movements, consumer goods, and machines and on the technologies that make them available, as on the language itself.

This course aims to help students gain a perspective on the contemporary family by studying the development of this important institution in the American past. Particular emphasis will be placed on changing attitudes toward and experiences of sex roles, sexuality, childrearing, work patterns, and relationships between men, women, and children. We will explore race, ethnicity, and class; cover economic developments as well as shifting conceptions of the role of the state; and ask about the impact of these factors on family life. We will want to examine how much the family has changed over time and try to project, on the basis of historical evidence, whither the family is going.

This course is an introduction to the history of American women as a group, as individuals, and as members of different classes, and racial, regional and ethnic communities. Using work, politics, and sexuality as organizing concepts, it focuses particularly on the significance of gender in determining women's experiences from the early seventeenth century to 1870. Special attention is paid to initial and continuing encounters of Native Americans, Euro-Americans, and African-Americans; to evolving constructions of "womanhood" and their significance for different groups of women; to the meaning of religious movements, wars, economic transformations, and demographic shifts for women's individual and collective efforts to determine the course of their own histories.

This course analyzes women's work and political activity in modern Europe. We will focus primarily on Britain, France and Germany, and will examine such issues as the nature of women's work, how continued industrial development has changed that work, the effect of popular notions like "separate spheres" on the sexual division of labor, forms of women's collective action, and the impact of the welfare state on women's lives. The success of the course rests on active class participation. Students should come to class prepared with questions and comments on each week's reading. In addition, students will be expected to prepare a brief (5-7 pp.) midterm essay and a final, 12-15 page research paper, due at the end of the term.

This course will survey major historic developments in medieval Jewish society under both Islam and western Christendom. Broadly, the course will look at the divergence of Judaism and Christianity, the rise of the Babylonian geonim, the social and cultural history of Jews in the Arab Mediterranean world, the emergence of Jewish communities in Medieval Ashkenaz, and the impact on Jewish society of the Crusades, the Reconquista, the emergence of the mendicant orders, and the Black Death. The course will examine the interaction of Jews with the majority culture, political structure, and economy, as well as changing cultural trends within Jewish society. The distinctive religious climate of the medieval period will serve as a unifying theme throughout. We will study primary sources as well as recent historical scholarship, and our focus will include the history of women as well as that of men. Class is conducted as lecture and discussion of texts with an occasional film or slide lecture. Requirements for the course: several short written and oral assignments, tests, and final examination. Prerequisites: None. History 110 and some familiarity with Judaism or Jewish civilization (Religion 201, Judaic Studies 379/HJCS 379, or similar) is recommended background.

This course surveys Jewish history in Europe, America, and the Middle East from the mid-seventeenth century to the 1870s. It begins with the emergence of West European Jews from cultural and social isolation, discusses their political emancipation, and traces their efforts to modernize Jewish ritual and belief. The focus then shifts to Eastern Europe, where the world of tradition persisted much longer. The lectures on Eastern Europe will focus on the religious and social character of Jewish life in Poland and Russia, the development of Hasidism, and the first glimmerings of enlightenment in the mid-nineteenth century. The course will conclude with a look at the Jewish communities of North Africa and the Middle East. There will be an essay-type midterm, a 10-12 page paper, and a comprehensive final.

Course Homepage: No Homepage Submitted.

In the face of the difficulties of adequately speaking and writing about the Holocaust, photographs and films are often believed to be more convincing, appealing not only to people's mind but also to their senses. The earliest example of this was an "atrocity film" planned by the western allies already in fall 1944. This film took footage of the liberation of the concentration camps and was shown not only to the public at home, but especially to German prisoners of war and later to the German people in the American occupation zone. Since then the Holocaust has been represented in very different ways in documentary as well as in feature films. Not until 1978 the NBC television series "Holocaust" brought the topic to the conscience of mass audiences in the U.S. and abroad, and at the same time made the extermination of the European Jews a subject of such popular genres as melodrama, family saga and in the late 90s even comedy.

In this lecture course we will watch several different films, discuss our impressions, analyze significant sequences, learn about their varied and controversial reception in the U.S. and elsewhere (especially in Germany and Israel), and think about the implications and effects of the different strategies of representing the Holocaust.

During the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, just as the discoveries of Copernicus and Galileo were inaugurating the Scientific Revolution, there was a parallel rise of intellectual interest in magic. This 'Magical Renaissance' was far removed from the older and widespread folk beliefs in magic. It was one of the distinguishing intellectual trends of the age. This class examines the 'occult philosophy' in England and its leading practitioners, setting them in their European context. It will focus on angelic magic, astrology, and alchemy and on such figures as John Dee, Simon Forman, and Robert Fludd. It will investigate the connections between their magical pursuits and contemporary science, including the alchemical interests of Isaac Newton. Finally, it will try to determine why these systems of thought in the later seventeenth and eighteenth centuries became unfashionable, branded as superstition by polite society and practiced only by eccentric groups and by people pandering to popular tastes.

This colloquium deals with several fundamental issues in western civilization as they have manifested themselves in the Anglo-American past: the requisites for criminal guilt; the means of determining whether one possesses those requisites (typically, the criminal trial); and the most common justifications for imposition of punishment (retribution, deterrence, and reform). We shall study these matters in relation to two central ideas of freedom: political liberty and human free will. Special attention will be given to: the history of the jury as a "buffer" between the state and the individual or the community; the manner in which challenges to the presumption that humans possess the ability freely to control their behavior have shaped the institutions and ideas of Anglo-American criminal justice. Students will analyze and discuss primary sources and recent historical writings and will write several short papers and a term paper.

Memories and interpretations of the past figure prominently in most peoples' understandings of "who they are" and "how they came to be" that way. Yet accounts of the past whether personal or popular, individual or collective are inevitably selective. How are narratives of the past formed, how do they figure in the practice of daily life, how are they used or politicized by individuals, groups, and nations, and how are people influenced by them? Using Armenian historical consciousness in the late twentieth century as a case study to be explored in depth, this course will also examine in theoretical and comparative perspective the ways in which accounts of history can circumscribe or interact dynamically with conceptions of personal, ethnic, or national identity. In readings and class discussion, particular attention will be paid to approaches to ethnicity and the relationships among history and territoriality; historiography, political philosophy, and nationalism; historical narratives and state-building; and ideologies of tradition and modernity. Students will write and revise two short (5-8 page) papers, and will write and revise one longer (10-15 page) final paper.

This undergraduate seminar will explore some of the ways in which knowledge about human beings and their behavior has been made from the late eighteenth century to the present. Looking across a range of academic disciplines including anthropology, sociology, psychology, psychiatry, and economics we will focus particularly on how human beings, considered individually or collectively, have become objects of scientific investigation. We will also query the social and political implications of this move. Starting with various attempts to understand the human sciences theoretically, we will address such topics as the construction of the notion of normality, the making and re-making of hysteria as a mental pathology, the development of the sciences of race and gender, the human being as an experimental object, and state power and human individuality. We will be concerned throughout with understanding the cultural embeddedness and political ramifications of the various ways in which human beings have been constituted within the human sciences.

Philosophical and religious thinking about death in western culture (the fear of death, preparation for death, the good death, death in the scheme of divine justice) from the Old Testament and the Greeks to the seventeenth century (or possibly to the twentieth). The reading list varies from year to year, but it is always selected from the major works and authors of the western tradition, such as the Old and New testaments, Plato, the Stoics, Augustine, the Ars moriendi, Thomas à Kempis, Erasmus, Luther, Calvin, Montaigne, John Donne, Voltaire, Freud, Elizabeth Kubler-Ross, Geoffrey Gorer, Ignace Lepp, and Viktor Frankl. The course meets for one three-hour session weekly: the first two hours will be devoted to discussion of the reading, and participation is an essential part of the course. The third hour is to be an informal lecture in preparation for the next week's reading. Students will be graded on class participation, occasional quizzes, and four essays, based on the assigned readings. The first three essays will be 3 to 6 pages each. The fourth essay (10 to 12 pages) will be a synthetic exercise: students will be encouraged to find topics that will allow them to draw on relevant reading from the whole term. Cost is difficult to predict but it should be below $100; how much below depends on the Internet.

The French consider the Revolution of 1789 to be the turning point in their national history; others outside France have called this moment the birthplace of modern political culture and looked to it as the model for all subsequent revolutions. In this course we will study the events of the Revolution and their political, social, and cultural import, as well as their legacies both within France and beyond. Particular attention will be paid to the experience of revolution and the different ways in which the revolution was experienced and made sense of by women and men, Parisians and provincials, revolutionaries and opponents of the Revolution. Readings will include primary documents and recent work by historians. Class format includes both lecture and discussion.

This course is about the "first three minutes" of the modern mental universe in actuality, about three centuries of historical time (1500-1800). It concentrates on how the "big bang" of the Protestant Reformation blasted apart a world view and a culture that had slowly developed over a thousand years. The explosive force of that strangely contingent event, renewed by subsequent eruptions of religious conflict and civil war, divided the English people culturally as never before. Magic declined, miracles and malevolent witches disappeared, the prestige of the ancient sciences of astrology and alchemy eroded. New and powerful philosophical ideas about human understanding and physical reality flourished; scientific explanations for a vast array of celestial, earthly, and mental phenomena proliferated and were embraced by laypersons as the basis of a new faith, the faith in (someone else's) reason. The world view that dominates modern English (and Western) culture emerged from almost three hundred years of charged conflict and began rapidly to evolve into contemporary scientism. And yet the shattering effect of the events that powered cultural change also made it impossible for secularization and rational religion fully to triumph. The hold of rational religion and secularism on the minds of the majority of ordinary men and women remained less complete than on the minds of the educated, governing classes. The result finally was a cultural and social realignment. The elite fashioned a "superculture" that is dominated by religious rationalism and scientistic faith; the dissenting sects, the lower classes and marginalized groups have sustained and created subcultures that are characterized by supernatural wonder and sudden infusions of spiritual and emotional energy. Much has changed since 1800 when this process was more or less completed, but these cultural and class divisions have not disappeared, and they have complicated ethnic relations as well as politics. In sum, this course is finally a meditation on how England lost its medieval mind and found its modern, divided sensibility. Principal readings will include all or part of Eamon Duffy, The Stripping of the Altars; Keith Thomas, Religion and the Decline of Magic; James Sharpe, Instruments of Darkness: Witchcraft in England, 1550-1800; Peter French, John Dee: The Life of a Renaissance Magus; and Steven Shapin, The Scientific Revolution. A course pack of articles and original sources will also be required. Students will be asked to write three short (five page) papers on the readings for class; an in-class, midterm examination and a two-hour final examination.

In this course we will explore the history of Japan from the dissolution of a semi-feudal system in the 18th and early 19th centuries to Japan's rise as a world economic power in the latter half of the 20th century. We will address both the major historical themes during these two centuries of radical transformation and the issues at stake in historical interpretation. The course covers: (1) the decline of official power during the Tokugawa era and the rise of a new plebeian public sphere; (2) Japan's coerced entry into the world market; (3) the consolidation of a modern nation-state, industrialization, and the beginnings of Japanese imperialism in Asia; (4) the rise of social protest and mass culture; (5) political reaction and militarism; (6) defeat in the Pacific War and the U.S. Occupation; (7) postwar recovery and the contested emergence of a conservative hegemony; (8) myths and realities of Japan's new affluent "information society." Class sessions will combine lecture, discussion and audio-visual. Assignments: brief critical summaries of readings, discussion panels, in-class midterm, final paper.

Credits: (3).

Course Homepage: No Homepage Submitted.

This course approaches film as one of the most important and influential cultural media of mid-century America, a powerful and persuasive entertainment space in which Americans told, watched, and invented stories about themselves and others. As such, film is an extraordinary, though not uncomplicated or transparent, historical source. How did American films of mid-century (1935-1955) deal with the major social and cultural issues of these decades? Gender and sexual politics? Race and pluralism? Class and wealth? War and neo-imperialism? The anxiety of modernity? How did films' narrative structure appear to resolve dilemmas over complex social questions? Did films teach Americans to think and understand themselves in conventional ways, or could viewers read against their messages? These are the kinds of questions we will ask as we explore mid-century American culture and society through film. This course is above all a critical study of society, culture, and media, an exploration of the complicated historical contexts in which images and stories are produced, circulated, and debated.

This course examines Burma, now known as Myanmar, and adjacent areas of western mainland Southeast Asia from earliest times until the present day. Although Burma itself, a country roughly the size of Texas with a population of some 45,000,000 people, is hardly a major world power, the patterns of precolonial history, colonialism, military rule, ethnic conflict, and the current struggle for economic development are broadly representative of much of Asia, the Middle East, and Africa. In this sense Burma offers a rewarding case study of a "Third World" society, and provides answers to such basic questions as: Why did Asia and Europe develop differently in the premodern era? What evidence do we find of economic dynamism outside Europe? Why is democracy fragile and unsuccessful in much of Asia? What role do non-Christian religions play in promoting trauma? Beyond the value that mmay derive from consideration of these sort of general problems, Burma's unique Buddihist civilization is extraordinarily intriguing and worthy of study in its own right.

This course will examine the social, cultural, and political lives of people who lived in the warring countries of Europe in the late 1930s and 1940s. War is waged not just by soldiers and on battlefields, and increasingly it is being realized how crucial the home front is to the battle front although it is often portrayed as a secondary sphere of activity. Especially in the Second World War, with the massive bombing of populated cities, the occupation of villages and hamlets by foreign soldiers, not to mention the Nazi program to exterminate the Jews, the line separating the battlefield from the sanctity of the home was thin at best. The course will focus in particular on Britain, France, Germany and Italy. Our comparative focus will allow for an exploration of how different political regimes represented themselves to their citizens, and how those regimes dealt with issues of gender, class, and ethnic/racial difference.
