HIST206 - CAPITALIST ENTERPRISE IN MODERN JAPAN

Description: 
This course looks at Japanese history through business. The birth, expansion, and crisis of business corporations have been a critical focus in the evolution of Japan’s economy, social politics, and transnational network. In order to understand the complex and pervasive impact of business on Japanese history, this course engages four questions: How did business rise and evolve in Japan? How has Japanese business converged and diverged from global trends? How have business corporations in Japan, as workplaces and producers of commodities, driven politics, economics, education, and gender, or vice versa? Through select primary and secondary sources, students will obtain an inside glimpse of Japanese history, global modernity, and the discipline of social and cultural history. Students will produce two short essays, participate in class discussion, and submit a final paper based on their own research.
