Course Overview This course is for students intending to conduct graduate research in the field of Japanese history. Each participant will be required to devise a reading and research trajectory to accomplish their particular research goal. This includes writing an independent study proposal, developing an appropriate reading list, and designing a research schedule.
The proposal (approx. 1000 words) and an initial reading list should be submitted on the first day of class (April 9, 2019). Generally, students should propose a topic in relation to their MA thesis. The proposal should include a statement of the objective(s) of the project as well as a description of the research and reading to be undertaken.
Students will be informed of their acceptance into this course within three days of the first class. They will then be asked to expand their reading list and research schedule to comprise a semester’s worth of academic material and work.
