Men, Women, and Animals (3) Japanese history and culture through the lens of relations between men and women and between humans and animals.
JAPNS 423 Men, Women, and Animals (3)
Through readings in primary and secondary sources, and to a lesser extent through the evaluation of visual images, this seminar-style course will examine relations between men and women in changing social contexts over time in Japan. We will also investigate human-animal interactions, in the realms of literature and symbolism, religion, and food production and other aspects of economic production. The course will address issues fundamental to every society past and present. Therefore, it will not only deepen students’ knowledge of Japan but it will also provide a solid basis for comparative study of other societies.
