COMP 274 Spring 2015 Confronting Japan (W)

Cross Listed as JAPN274
This tutorial looks into confrontations, within Japan and across its borders, how such confrontations are perceived, handled and narrated, and what they tell us about Japanese society. Through literature and other media, we will probe domestic issues, such as bullying, suicide, reclusion and gender inequality, and international issues, related to Japan's shifting role within East Asia. Discussions will untangle the conflicting perspectives, and elaborate the thoughts and feelings of the various contestants. All readings and discussions will be in English. Some course materials will also be available in Japanese, for those interested. As this tutorial actively explores diversity of human thought, and the contexts that create such diversity, this is an EDI course.
