E科目 (English, English)
Course Overview What was life like for foreigners living in Japan before the early twentieth century? Focusing our study on firsthand accounts and other documentary sources, we will examine some of the experiences of European, Korean, and Chinese individuals who made their livelihoods in Japan from the mid-sixteenth through the nineteenth century. Our readings and class discussions will explore a range of topics such as: theoretical models for studying foreigners in Japan; the historical and cultural contexts for their presence in Japan; and the effects of foreigners on Japanese culture and history. Methodologically, we will focus on detailed readings and analysis of documentary and material sources. Through our discussions we will shed light on the broader discourse of integration, exclusion, and exchange between minority and majority groups in Japan and elsewhere.

The class will be organized as an intensive course. Accordingly, the reading requirements are fewer than for a longer course. As is appropriate for an intensive course, a close reading and detailed understanding of the material will be expected. In addition to class participation, students will be asked to submit a book review, two short responses to each of our fieldtrips, and a short research project.

Your research project will explore a primary source related to the history of foreigners in Japan that is either not assigned as part of a reading for class or not listed on the syllabus. Both documentary and material/pictorial sources are acceptable primary sources. Examples of acceptable sources include, but are not limited to, historical accounts, paintings, lacquer, ceramics, etc. While a short assignment, this is a formal paper and citations and a bibliography are expected. Depending on your language skills, your paper will typically cite non-English primary and secondary sources. Even when you cannot read a primary source well, you should make an attempt to locate and read it, especially when a translation is available for comparison.

Course Overview This seminar is eligible for IMAP / IDOC students and by teacher's permission only. We will read and discuss selected texts relating to the rich traditions of architecture and material culture in Japan spanning from temples and shrines to reception halls, tea huts, castles, gardens and residential buildings as well as crafted objects. A particular focus will be the functions of manmade environment and the underlying concepts of “spatial thinking” in Japanese culture as well as the interaction of architecture with interior furnishing and human performance. Although the main focus will be Japan before 1900, there will be a critical discussion of “Japanese styles” and “Japaneseness” in modern and contemporary architecture, both in Japan and the West.

E科目 (English, English)
Course Overview "Pictures of the floating world," or ukiyoe, are doubtlessly one of the most recognizable and influential stylistic genres of Japanese pre-modern art.
This seminar focuses on multi-color woodblock prints that were created during the Edo period (1615-1868). We will discuss techniques, styles, subjects, and social contexts of this commoner art and will also delve into the related fields of theater, book illustration, object design, and cover some indigenous traditions of image-text interaction that predate the emergence of ukiyo-e. Not the least, we will address the lasting legacy of Japanese print culture that keeps relevant for Western modernity and contemporary global art.

Ito A-102 Classroom
E科目 (English, English)
Course Overview This course focuses on various types of religious specialists in Japan’s history. Through the category of ‘vernacular,’ it emphasizes the orality, performance, hybrid practices, and localities of these figures. Throughout much of the twentieth century, the fields of Japanese religions and Buddhist studies more broadly privileged religion at the elite level: the Buddhist canon, state patronage, doctrine and philosophy, and so forth. Practice and the quotidian realm became the domain of “folk studies” (minzokugaku in Japan), a field with its own shortcomings, including the romanticization of its subjects and a lack of attention to historical change. Both fields have made significant improvements in recent decades, narrowing the perceived gap between ‘elite’ and ‘popular.’ This course explores recent research on religious practitioners whose social networks, ritual practice, knowledge systems, and livelihoods blur these categories. Class meetings center on a particular type of figure: street preachers, mountain ascetics, female mediums, diviners, etc. Our task will be twofold: 1) to study what role they played in society and 2) to evaluate previous scholarship on the topics at hand. Students will facilitate discussions, write brief weekly responses, and over the course of the semester, develop a research project of their own choice.

Course Code:

Ito G30 Classroom
E科目 (English, English)
Course Overview Popular and scholarly interest in both the use(s) and meaning(s) of “cultural heritage” have increased dramatically in recent decades. Cultural heritage is a powerful political and economic tool, one that derives from individual or mixed aspects of culture, among which religion and non-religious belief systems are a significant and very meaningful segment. The roots of “cultural heritage” are not always disclosed, but there, too, we find belief systems at the core of preservation and continuation and innovation in the cultural sphere.

This seminar explores the theoretical and practical dimensions of “sacred heritage,” or cultural heritage of religious interest, in Japanese and global contexts. We will adopt an interdisciplinary approach, integrating perspectives from such disciplines as religion, history, cultural anthropology, and archaeology. Guiding themes of the course include (1) religion and cultural heritage in theory and application; (2) the diverse forms of national and international cultural heritage in Japan; (3) the identification, assessment, interpretation/representation, preservation, promotion, and contestation of sacred heritage; (4) nationalism/national identity and cultural politics; (5) museums and the politics of representation; (6) tourism and the marketing of sacred heritage.

Course Overview Through a study of the history, statues, paintings, buildings, and other arts and material culture of Japan, 6th through 18th century, course participants will acquire and develop practical specialist knowledge and skills needed for further research in premodern and early modern Japanese art and cultural history.

Sessions will introduce important cultural moments and monuments that have come to define Japan and critique the historiography of their reception. It will introduce examples of paintings, statues, gardens, temples, shrines, and issues relating to culture and artistic production, with the goal of providing a window as to why art and culture are produced and how they have functioned throughout Japanese history.

Lectures will discuss works and sites in detail, contextualizing not only the works in history but also the scholarship on the study of Japanese art, architecture, and visual culture broadly through consideration of the historiography and East Asian and Indian arts.

Course Overview This course examines popular narratives and festivals from historical through contemporary Japan. Rather than using traditional sources (canonical works, philosophical doctrines, etc.), it focuses on non-elite modes of expression: oral histories, epic tales, local legends, stories of the supernatural, music, religious festivals, manga, anime, and film. Through analyses of these mediums, we will explore the underlying belief structures that have shaped ideas concerning death and the afterlife, ethics, otherness, and the spiritual realm in Japan. The course also interrogates the intellectual construct of the ‘folk’ and folk religion. Who are the folk? How does this concept relate to regional versus national identity, civilized versus so-called primitive populations, premodern versus modern categories? We will engage these questions in a seminar-style format, emphasizing active discussion and critical analysis of sources.
