The Origins of Japanese Culture and Civilization: A History of Japan until 1600

Thomas Donald Conlan

Back to "Spring 2021" courses

This course is designed to introduce the culture and history of Japan, and to examine how one understands and interprets the past. In addition to considering how a culture, a society, and a state develop, we will try to reconstruct the tenor of life in “ancient” and “medieval” Japan and chart how patterns of Japanese civilization shifted through time.
