授業の目的、概要等  
Culture and Society are concepts relative to one’s own experience which can be elaborated through multiple perspectives and comparison. In fact, bunka(文化): culture and shakai(社会): society, are both translated words created only after contact with the West during the Meiji era. In this course we will discuss Japanese culture and society through comparison and through the lens of foreigners, using resources such as documentaries, news articles, books, social media and guest speakers. We will explore various aspects of Japanese culture and society through discussion on the materials provided in class. Students are encouraged to have active discussion in English.
