ASCL 69.22 Reading Edo-Tokyo: An Interdisciplinary Approach

For the past two centuries, Edo-Tokyo has been the spatial, temporal, and conceptual focal point of Japan’s political, economic, and aesthetic modernization. We will explore the city’s historical and cultural transformation between the early nineteenth century and the present using three separate but interrelated disciplinary rubrics for “reading” the city: (1) urban visuality, (2) literary and filmic textuality, and (3) ethnography. While the course moves through these three rubrics roughly in order, our goal will be to develop synthetic approaches to analyzing the broader urban “text” known as “Edo-Tokyo.”

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
