Course Description: From Hollywood to video games, samurai are among the most recognizable—and most misinterpreted—of Japanese historical figures. What does scholarship tell us about these warriors? How can this high-interest “hook” be used to effectively and accurately explore Japanese history and culture in the Medieval and Tokugawa periods, as well as popular culture today? With an emphasis on primary source readings, this course offers historical context, resources, and strategies for teaching Japanese history through case studies of samurai over time.
