国際日本研究演習III

The Politics of Space: An Urban History of Tokyo
This course looks at the history of Tokyo to examine issues related to the production and organization of space in the context of the city. It will introduce critical approaches to the study of urban history to understand how space is defined and marked by structures of power. Although the overall framework is historical, the course will cover topics relating to the creation of public and private spaces; space and identity through the everyday; political economy and the built environment; and representations of space in literature, maps and films. The class content will briefly cover the Edo period before examining various moments of Tokyo’s history up until the early 2010s.
