Ideology and Social Change in Japan - 53717 - SOC 2130 - 801
CL: ASST 2000 (801). Topical Course Description: Ideology and Social Change in Japan addresses the ideological components of contemporary social and political issues in Japan. The study of ideology involves analysis of conceptual frames of reference, based upon an understanding of cultural values and beliefs as they are articulated through political discourse and embodied in public policy. This course approaches Japanese social change from a comparative perspective, with reference to globalization and its effects on Japanese culture today. Topics addressed will include Japanese nationalism, racial/ethnic minorities and their status in an increasingly diverse society, gender roles & family, the “soft power” politics of youth and popular culture, and economic stratification in the labor market. The course also examines the profound effect that Japan's history of disasters (especially the 3/11 Tohoku disasters: earthquake, tsunami and the Fukushima nuclear crisis) have brought to Japan, and the social and psychological impact of rapid social change in this uniquely post–modern society.
