HIST 4007 Global Japan since the 1970s (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

This course challenges students to engage with cutting-edge ethnographic and historical writings on social conflict and change in Japan since the 1970s. Beginning with an understanding of the dynamics of civil society, we explore the dynamics of gender, class, ethnicity, and youth in urban, rural, and transnational settings to complicate “Japan” as a national entity. Each topic is examined via primary and secondary sources, public debates and popular culture, and with respect to historical experiences and linkages abroad.
