授業の概要・目的 This course aims to explore Japan's cultural and diplomatic developments during the last decade of the Tokugawa Shogunate, through in-depth readings of documents (such as memoirs, diaries, and diplomatic correspondences) written by people who worked on the ground during that time.
In the course, we will mainly look into writings of Rutherford Alcock, the first British Consul General/Minister to Japan, who held office from 1858 until 1865. Alcock's time was an extremely important inaugurating period of Japan's modern diplomacy, or a transitional chapter from early-modern to modern external relations. His work was particularly significant in promoting Japanese culture abroad.
到達目標 Students will understand the transcultural nature of Japan's path in the late 19th century and become familiar with historical studies by carefully following an individual's experiences.
It is also an important objective of the course to critically discuss people's conducts and development of their work in the forefront of facing a different culture.
授業計画と内容 Week 1:
Introduction

Week 2-13:
Discussions on Alcock's experiences mainly through his representative book "The capital of the tycoon: A narrative of a three years' residence in Japan" (2 Vols., 1863), in combination with some other sources when necessary, including his diplomatic correspondence.

Expected focuses are:
1) Alcock's arrival in Japan and and the beginning of a new life (3 weeks);
2) His early diplomatic negotiations with the Tokugawa shogunate and the beginning of Japan's modern diplomacy (3 weeks);
3) Changes of Alcock's views on Japan's current status and his further understanding of Japanese culture (3 weeks);
4) His efforts for promoting Japanese culture to Europe (3 weeks).

Classes will consist of:
- Students' presentations on assingned readings (mainly from the above-mentioned book);
- Discussions and further analyses in class; and
- Introduction to additional sources and reading materials.

Week 14-15:
Final presentations and discussions (feedback) on the students' plans for their final papers.

Note: The schedule and contents of the course may be reconsidered depending on the number of students, their knowledge of the Japanese language, and other related conditions.
