JPN 25100 - Japanese Culture Before 1600

Hunter Core
Individual and Society - Humanities (I&S H)
Pluralism and Diversity

Covering many facets of Japanese culture, this course will focus on the various periods of Japanese history (Jomon, Yayoi, Kofun, and Heian – to name a few) and uncover how many aspects of Japanese culture were shaped. From the influence from nearby countries – most notably China – to its isolationist periods, its mythology, the evolution of its art, the deep-seated love of nature shared by many Japanese, and the co-existence of multiple belief systems, Japan is a truly unique country whose culture continues to gain in popularity within the United States. Taught entirely in English.
While this is a two-part course, Japanese Culture Before 1600 (JPN 25100) will not act as a prerequisite for Japanese Culture Since 1600 (JPN 25200).
