[JAPN 280] Japanese Popular Culture and Literature

Dealing with popular Japanese media—manga [comics], popular novels, film, and animation—this course offers a critical examination of how they are reflected in Japanese culture through time. To approach these popular forms of expression, various theoretical readings will be assigned for discussion. Since manga and animation are very popular not only in Japan but also in the United States and elsewhere, studying these media is important to understanding an increasingly global youth culture. Taught in English.
