目的と概要
/Object and
Summary
of Class
This course examines the social and intellectual transformations Japan underwent during the Meiji Period (1868-1912). Between the time of the arrival of U.S. Commodore Matthew C. Perry in 1853 and the death of its first "modern" emperor in 1912, Japan experienced a series of changes that would transform it from a land on the verge of colonization to a colonial empire in its own right. We will discuss the impact of the Meiji restoration, and the subsequent institutional and intellectual restructuring that took place thereafter, including the creation of a language to describe the new cultural reality.
