Description: In this multimedia course, we will examine a range of Japanese popular culture, including anime, manga, film, literature, and fashion. Through this exploration we will extend our understanding of Japanese cultural artifacts. But we will also use popular culture in Japan as a springboard for discussing pressing social issues such as gender, class, sexuality, nationalism, and consumer culture. Our goal is to rethink Japan through an investigation of popular culture, and to become attune to the mechanisms that have shaped and continue to shape Japan—its culture, its society, its place in the world. Class time will be devoted to lectures, discussions, and writing exercises.
