GRAD SEMINAR ON MODERN JAPANESE HISTORY

Jul 28, 2008

Dr. Febe Pamonag, Assistant Professor of Asian History at Western Illinois University, offered a graduate readings seminar (History 531) in Fall 2008, entitled "Topics in Modern Japanese History: Nationalism, Imperialism, and Gender." The seminar met on Thursday evenings from 6:30 to 9:00 in Morgan 453 (STAR number 33780).

This graduate readings seminar examined three major themes in Japanese History: nationalism, imperialism, and gender relations. Students examined recent scholarship on these themes in relation to such topics as Meiji nation-building and education; race and imperialism; women and war; war, history and memory; national identify and gender issues; and history education and the State.

Course requirements included class participation in discussion of the readings, presentation on an assigned reading, leading of discussion, producing a major paper, and presenting that paper to the class.
