JPN 25200 - Japanese Culture Since 1600

Pluralism and Diversity

This course will focus on Japanese culture after roughly 1600. During this time, Japan was largely isolated from the rest of the world, but specific events led to a mixture of vastly different cultures – that of the Japanese and the Western world, which led to many changes within Japan. Additional major topics include the impact of both World Wars, contemporary Japanese lifestyle, and the various holidays and traditions that are celebrated today. Art, literature, and social reform will also play important roles throughout the semester.
