Japanese Social Problems - 13563 - ASST 3030 - 812
Topical Course description: This course will draw on a "social constructionist" framework and examine how certain social problems have been discovered, defined, and dealt with in postwar Japan. We will begin the course by providing an overview of sociological approaches, in particular, a social constructionist approach to social problems, and critically examining Nihonjin-ron (theories of Japanese-ness) to provide frameworks for approaching Japanese social problems. We will then discuss specific Japanese social problems around the family, education, youth, gender, work, ethnic/racial minorities, disabilities, and aging.
