ASCL 69.23 Shogun and Samurai: Japan in the Age of the Warrior

This course explores the origins and development of the warrior class that dominated and redefined the political economy and high culture of Japan between the twelfth and nineteenth centuries. Through readings, discussions, lectures, and films, we will examine such topics as the rise of the samurai, the transition from imperial to warrior government, the evolution of samurai values and beliefs, and the legacy of warrior rule and culture for modern Japan.

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.
