GS 215 - Introduction to Japanese Culture

(3-4 S.H.)

This course explores Japanese culture and civilization from its prehistoric roots to the present. Beginning with physical conditions such as geography and climate, this course will examine how such realities have affected religious, historical, political, and regional social structures. From these, the course will proceed to cultural productions, including both “high” and “popular” culture. The goal of the course is not merely to show students how Japan is, but to encourage them to think about why Japan has emerged as it has during the past 2,500 years and to develop an informed perspective on where Japan and its people may be headed in the future. Meets GOAL 8. Grade or P/NC.
