Japanese Media and Global Culture, Summer 2013 (Journalism and other credit available – more details to come)
Japanese Media and Global Culture introduces students to various aspects of Japanese society and culture through the vehicle of different media: television, magazines, music, anime, manga, and film. Each medium is taken as a starting point to discuss important dimensions of Japanese culture, its history, and Japan’s relationship to the rest of the world. Major themes addressed throughout the workshop include race, ethnicity and gender dynamics in Japan, the construction of Japanese national/cultural identity, Japan’s position in a global context (as it relates both to “the West” and to the rest of Asia), and its involvement in processes of transnational cultural exchange.
