Japanese History Before 1868

  • 7.5 credits

This course explores significant social and political progress in pre-modern Japan until 1868, through the lens of arts and material culture. The course focus on the methodological challenges associated to the use of artifacts as sources for history and inquires into the limits of such interpretations.

The primary objective of the course is to enable students to discover how the understanding of pre-modern Japanese art and history transforms the ways we perceive and engage with the world we live in now.
