Brief Summary of ProposalThis course explores various aspects of Japanese culture from feudal to modern times through the viewing of films by native Japanese directors. Discussions focus on the traditional mentality and way of life that remains unchanged over time, as well as on the transformations effected by Western influences after the Meiji Restoration in people’s lives. The objective of this course is for students to broaden their cultural horizons by learning unique aspects of Japanese culture and gaining insights into the Japanese way of life. At the same time, students will develop a cross-cultural perspective on the many similarities and differences between Japanese and American culture. No knowledge of the Japanese language is required for this course.
