How to Find Modern Japan
From the city-country dichotomy and the Kyoto-Osaka-Tokyo rivalry within Japan to the island nation’s ambiguous position vis-à-vis the East-West divide, depictions of place have played a central role in shaping modern Japanese identity at the national, regional, and individual level. This gateway course introduces students to key locales in the cultural production of modern Japanese identity, offering a virtual tour of Japan and its significant others through major works of Japanese literature and film. Particular attention will be paid to socio-historical context.
