Anime in Japanese Popular Culture - 7060 - ASST 3000 - 812
Notes: An extra media fee of 8,800 yen is required. Field trips are mandatory in this class. Extended class (screening) time is also required. Topical Section Description: The rich and varied world of Japanese anime (animation) 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 anime as Japanese pop cultural texts, adopting an interdisciplinary approach. In each class, a new genre, theme or creator of anime will be examined to give a valuable insight into key aspects of Japanese culture. Episodes of TV anime and clips from animated films will be screened and discussed. 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 anime culture. Students will conduct independent research projects on anime and write a final paper.
