Curriculum

HIST 348 - The Pacific War: As Seen through Japan’s Museums and Memorials

Japan’s defeat in the Pacific War was so complete and destructive that even today, Japanese society struggles with the question of whether Japan was aggressor or victim in the conflict. Through readings that explore the history of the conflict, postwar Japanese views of the war, and the contemporary politics surrounding the issue, as well as through visits to sites of historical commemoration, this course will give students a deep understanding of the variety of cultural and political issues that arise through defeat in a costly, total war. Sites to be visited include Tokyo (firebombed in March 1945), Okinawa (invaded in April), and Hiroshima (site of the first nuclear attack in August).
