Edo Japan: 1600 to 1868

Start Date: January 28, 2019
End Date: February 4, 2019
Type of Course: Face-to-Face Seminars and Workshops
Course Description: Tokugawa Japan (also known as the Edo era) lasted from 1600 to 1868. This unprecedented time of peace and relative prosperity for Japan were the seeds for what Japan became by the end of the nineteenth century—a powerful colonial power and Asia’s first industrial state. During Tokugawa’s almost three-hundred-year period, Japan’s urban and rural populations were transformed; the art form of woodblock and the Kabuki theater emerged; and a political balancing act, known as the Baku-Han system kept Japan moving forward. As one observer noted, “Tokugawa Japan was pacified, bureaucratized, but not unified.” This seminar will explore Edo Japan’s gender relations, social interactions, religious changes, artistic endeavors, and the Baku-Han system. This hybrid seminar will meet both in person at Boise State University and online.
