Global Japan Studies Summer Program 2020: AN INQUIRY INTO JAPAN'S POSTWAR

Global Japan Studies Summer Program “An Inquiry into Japan’s Postwar”
 This 10-day course explores Japan’s postwar period from interdisciplinary and experiential perspectives. Japan’s postwar is usually described as four decades of high economic growth followed subsequently by a prolonged recession dubbed “the lost two decades” (1990-present). Japan’s postwar, however, points to a far more complicated and ongoing process of social, cultural, and political changes, which this course is set to explore.
 Students will join fellow participants from overseas universities in a ten-day intensive program of interdisciplinary academic lectures (in humanities and social sciences) and carefully planned field trips in Tokyo and surrounding areas. Through a well-designed schedule of on- and off-campus study, this course urges students to critically understand and analyze socio-cultural, political, and technological issues, such as sustainable urban planning, poverty, and historical memory. These issues are key for understanding not only Japan’s postwar itself but also the larger world to which Japan is closely connected and of which Japan is intrinsically a part.
 By the end of the program, students will have
1. gained a more nuanced understanding of Japan’s postwar as a complex and changing society;
2. learned analytical skills with which to analyze social phenomena in Japan and other parts of the world;
3. improved their intercultural communication skills as a result of collaboration in research projects and presentations with fellow students from different countries of the world.
