Course Description: This course uses readings and discussion in primary sources and selected literature on modern Japanese history. Topics vary each year. The topic for this year is the history of imperialism and religion in Japan. Students read secondary sources (by scholars) and primary sources (written at the time we are studying) in order to explore the relationship between religion and imperialism in Japan in the second half of the nineteenth century and the first half of the twentieth century. The course explores the influence of Christianity on Western imperialism in Japan and the influence of Japanese Buddhism and Christianity on Japanese imperialism. Students write two short research papers, and they help each other find and interpret primary sources and write their papers.
