Description: Focused on (but not limited to) the first half of the 20th century, this course explores representations of Japan in a wide range of visual and material culture: ephemera generated by tourism and education; advertisements and souvenirs; and wartime propaganda traveling similar routes of exchange. Illustrations, guidebooks, photographs, and films reflect changing concepts of urban space, rural culture, industry, geography, and military and political authority. Recurrent iconography and coded images link tourism and educational objects and images with evolving concepts of nationalism and cultural identity. How is the meaning of modern in Japan useful to a study of the continuous transformation of culture in specific contexts, as in the transition from ukiyo-e culture to photography and animated films. This course has a digital component: students work (hands on) with the Re-Envisioning Japan Research Collection in curating their own digital exhibitions. Weekly film assignments. Trips to MAG/GEM (trans. incl.).
