  • Note new room.
  • We shall read and discuss genuinely excellent English-language monographs on Japanese history from the classical period through the early modern (or Edo) period. The canon, as it were. The top hits, old and new, that deserve (and reward) careful attention. Selections will be influenced by the research interests of the group and comparative material (outside the Japan field) will be introduced as appropriate. All welcome (auditors, visitors, old and new friends), as long as you read the work resourcefully and are ready for searching conversation. Selective attendance by auditors is fine. Requirements include weekly reading notes and two historiographical essays.
