世界歴史と東アジアI(1)

Media and Modernity in Japan
This course aims to give students an overview of the interconnections between the formation of modern discourses and the development of various media in modern Japan up until the late 20th century. While the emphasis will be on print media and their relation to gendered everyday modernity as well as Japan’s self image, other related issues will be also explored.
