A visiting expert in early modern Japanese history offers a rare access to the intricate realities of Tokugawa Japanese society (1600-1868) through hands-on reading of documents in English translation and Japanese original. Shogunal and domain codes that represent the outer structure of governance, court cases that reveal how people actually lived, peasants' testaments that show the power of real economic value, and appeals by theaters and entertainers that speak for the era's cultural vigor are examples of what we may read in the course. Students enrolling in this course should have some prior familiarity with the early modern history of Japan. History 592, "Early Modern Japan," will incorporate this course. Students will be evaluated on the basis of (1) class attendance and participation and (2) one five-page paper that analyzes documents.
