Manga in Japanese Popular Culture - 7059 - ASST 2000 - 811
Notes: An extra media fee of 8,800 yen is required. Field trips are mandatory in this class. Topical Section Description: The rich and varied world of Japanese manga (comics) represents some of the most important cultural production in postwar Japan, and an increasingly important part of global popular culture. This course offers a thematic study of manga as Japanese pop cultural texts, adopting an interdisciplinary approach, drawing from the fields of history, sociology, comic studies and more. In each class, a new genre, theme or creator of manga will be examined to give a valuable insight into key aspects of Japanese culture. Discussion will center on close readings of specific manga, supported by texts. Rotating groups of students will be expected to facilitate discussion. Taking advantage of our location in Tokyo, fieldtrips will be organized for students to experience manga culture. Students will conduct independent research projects on manga, write a final paper and present their findings to class.
