Description

English-medium elective_Tokugawa Japan (1600-1868) is often thought of as a “closed country” (sakoku), but recent scholarship has revealed that trade and cultural contacts with the external world continued throughout this period and played a crucial role in Japan’s development. All required readings will be in English, but there will also be opportunities for students with appropriate levels of linguistic ability to take advantage of available primary and secondary sources in Japanese, Chinese, and Korean.
