Visualizing Japan in the Modern World

In this course, you will learn how to "visualize" Japanese history between the 1850s and 1930s, develop an understanding of Westernization, social protest, modernity in Japanese history through digital imagery, and learn strategies for learning--and teaching--history through visual sources.

授業計画
We will explore images that pertain to the emergence of Japan as a modern state. We will focus on images that depict Japan as it comes into contact with the rest of the world after its long and deep isolation during the feudal period. We will begin with Commodore Matthew C. Perry’s arrival in Japan in 1853-54 using images drawn from a wide range of collections in the U.S. and Japan. Later sections of the course will cover the opening of Japanese ports, especially Yokohama (Smithsonian’s Arthur Sackler Gallery); Russo-Japanese War (the Boston Museum of Fine Arts) and the Hibiya Park riot immediately after it; foreign photographers’ images of Japanese people and places (Hood Museum, Dartmouth University); modern Japanese women (the Shiseido Archives); and so forth. Time permitting, we will also cover city planning of Tokyo that took place after WWII, and such topics as the 1964 Tokyo Olympics.
