ASIAN 2211 - Introduction to Japan
(GHB) (CA-AS, ALC-AS, HST-AS)
Fall or Spring. 3 credits. Student option grading.
This course serves as a general introduction to the study of Japan in the humanities. Through literature, film, art, and pop culture, we will explore how “Japaneseness” and “Japanese culture” have historically been constructed, debated, and rethought from early history to the present from a variety of perspectives and academic disciplines. All texts will be available in English; no prior knowledge of Japanese language, history, or culture required.
