I Want to Learn How to Think Beyond Academic Disciplines
Vol.2 2011.10.19 WATANABE Masao
Memories and Record Seen from Medieval Documents
Since the late 13th century, Japanese legal systems and court systems have changed in many ways. In this course, we will look specifically at how laws were recorded and became memories amidst these changes by reading primary sources.
- WATANABE Masao
- Associate Professor at Tokyo University's Historiographical major is history of Japanese legal system. I hope to illuminate the specific ways in which relations between the law, the system, and rights historically transformed by looking at historical sources. I am currently interested in the roles played by non-academic individuals with legal knowledge and expertise in the structural change of social order in the 14th century.
