Diversity in Japan - 11863 - ASST 2000 - 711
CL: ANTH 2310 (711) Topical Section Description: Japan is often characterized as a “homogenous” and “unique” society with persistent gender gaps and a lack of accommodation for people with disabilities, while known as one of the most Westernized, developed countries in Asia. What roles have ideas of race and ethnicity played in the construction of Japan’s national identity, and how have they evolved in relation to Asian and Western others? How have Japan’s racial/ethnic minorities negotiated their identities against its mono-racial/mono-ethnic “myth”? How have gender ideologies been sustained, challenged, and/or practiced in families, education, workplaces, or popular culture in Japan? What have been the experiences of children and people with disabilities and/or special needs in Japanese education and larger society, and to what extent has Japan become an inclusive society for all? This course will examine these questions through historically contextualizing Japan’s present state surrounding issues of race/ethnicity, gender/sexuality, and disability, shedding light on ways in which these categories and issues have been interconnected through perspectives of intersectionality. We will explore ways in which diversity has been represented/articulated, masked, problematized, and/or negotiated in various oral and textual discourses, from policies, popular culture representations, to personal narratives in Japan.
