HIST091 - MODERN JAPANESE HISTORY

Description: 
This course will survey the dramatic story of transformation from feudal to modern Japan. It has two principal aims: 1) to provide a general narrative of events from 1600 to the present. 2) to introduce students to the most powerful tool of historical analysis: an awareness of the importance of interpretation. You will be asked not only to identify important people and events. You will be called upon, more particularly, to identify and contemplate different perspectives on the past and present.
