This course uses forms of Japanese popular culture as starting points for discussions of social class, gender and sexuality, globalization, nationalism, emotion, capitalism, and consumer culture. Rather than a survey of popular culture in contemporary Japan, this is a course in which we use popular music, sport, manga, anime, and other cultural forms to rethink the ways in which Japan is shaped from within and from outside.
