Course Description

IN350 / English 340, Studies in Poetry: Global Haiku Tradition examines the origins and spread of Japanese haikai poetics from Japan around the world, with a special focus on the adaptation of haiku into other cultures and languages.

A special feature of the course students will research leading international poets, editors and scholars of contemporary haiku. We will study the history of haiku and related poetics in Japan, and then examine the contemporary internalization of haiku in various international cultures.

Students also learn the art of haiku from both a reader and a writer perspective, thus practicing the haikai arts, not merely reading about them.
