EAS497H1: Beyond Orientalism

Hours: 
24S

This course confronts the Orientalist view of the world by looking at one Asian nation regularly exempted from that paradigm: Japan. By examining, among other topics, Japan's emperor system, its construction of a national history, and its own imperialism, this course hopes to point toward alternative ways of thinking about East and West.
