Course Description: This U.S.-Japan seminar provides active knowledge of modern Japanese history with emphasis on international relations and perceptions of Asia, and the “tools” to historically analyze the vital international issues. The course consists of three components. First, by using the basic textbooks, it briefly overviews the history of Japanese international relations. These sessions are rather in the style of colloquium. Second, by examining various historical documents, it analyzes the perception and opinions of contemporary problems. These sessions explore how and why the Japanese government decided to take a particular policy option, which determined the latter course of history. The third section entails independent research under the instructor’s guidance, and delivery of an interim report on the progress of research in a seminar session. As a final result, each student writes a research paper and gives a presentation in front of the research public. Assessment: participation (30%), a final paper (40%) and presentation (30%).
