This course explores Japan as an object of intellectual inquiry. While looking at various aspects of culture and society in Japan, students will critically consider the ways that scholars approach the study of Japan. Students will also contemplate how scholars contribute to productions of “Japan” and things “Japanese.” Though this course is required for Japanese Studies majors, it is open to any student who is interested in thinking about Japan.
