This seminar will introduce students to major themes in Japanese culture. Topics include "samurai in Japanese history", Japanese aesthetics, traditional and contemporary arts, Japanese religions, gender and family, Japanese capitalism and corporate culture. Emphasis is placed on learning the basic outlines of Japanese history, while also learning to appreciate Japanese arts from Kabuki and the Tea ceremony to Anime. Taking advantage of availability of various Japan related resources in NYC, we will visit a few Japan related exhibitions and also review some Japanese films.
