Course Description: During the last 65 years, Japan has never entirely freed itself from the heritage of the Second World War. Irrespective of nationality and political leaning, the existence of Japanese aggression during the 1930s-1940s is well-known, although rarely accompanied by stable factual knowledge or critical contextualization. While some things are unknowable, this course tries to expand the knowable; first outlining the history from the 1930s to the postwar period, and then examining some major issues. Of primary importance are negotiations about reparations in the 1950s, the comfort women issue, and the textbook controversy. The primary focus is Japan itself and southern areas, especially Southeast Asia. Assessment: Exams (60%), group and individual activities (30%), attendance (10%).
