Overview

This course offers a thematic overview of Japanese history from prehistory to the Meiji Imperial Restoration of 1868, its central theme being the history of women, gender and sexualities. As the course is essentially a cultural and social history, you will not only discuss the ideas and social practices of ruling classes (civil aristocrats and then bushi/warriors), but will also examine popular Buddhism, folk religion, peasant rebellion, commoner resistance, and aspects of popular culture.
