ASST 2111 - Japanese Literature: From Classical to Contemporary

Students taking this course will have the opportunity to learn about Japan's long literary history by reading, discussing, and analyzing selected novels, short stories, poems, and literary essays. The first half of the semester will focus on work produced up through the pre-modern period, with the second half covering the modern and contemporary periods. Writers ranging from Murasaki Shikibu and Yoshida Kenko to Natsume Soseki and Murakami Haruki will be introduced. Class discussions and assignments will help students become acquainted with current theoretical and methodological approaches in the fields of Japanese studies (and, more broadly, Asian Studies) and literary studies. All readings are English translations of work originally published in Japanese. NOTE: Students can receive credit only once for either ASST 2111 or Japanese 2111.
