Analyzing the Romantic Movement from Interdisciplinary, Diachronic, and Global Perspectives:
A Comprehensive Study of Romanticism (Yasuyoshi AO, Kazuaki OTA, Tsuneo NISHINO, Yoichiro SHIMADA)
This course provides a broad and comprehensive study of Romanticism in terms of its origins, development, and effects, exploring various aspects of the movement as it originated, developed, and changed over time from the early modern period to the present in Britain, America, France, Germany, Russia, and other countries.

Although Romanticism generally refers to an artistic, literal, and intellectual movement that originated in the late 18th century and flourished in the first half of the 19th century in Europe, it can be traced as back as to the 16th century, even to the Middle Ages, and its influence still can be observed in many modern writers and artists. Thus, this course places no less emphasis on the investigation of early modern as well as contemporary forms of Romanticism than on the 18th- and 19th- century movement.

This course explores not only the arts and literature, but also social thought, politics, and history, analyzing a variety of political documents and historical materials. In so doing, it intends to attain a fuller and deeper understanding of Romanticism as the product of diverse socio-political interactions and intellectual-cultural activities.
