ANT 3330 - Japan: Culture, Communication, and Identity

Credits: 3-6

Prerequisite(s): Permission of instructor

Description: This study abroad course explores Japanese culture, communication, and identity through lecture, experiential learning, and ethnographic fieldwork in Japan. Pre-departure instruction focuses on geography, history, social organization, political-economy, patterns of social interaction, and ethnographic field methods. Week-long stays in distinct regions of Japan enable students to observe and experience how social-political, regional, and linguistic differences shape majority and minority identities, despite the belief that Japan is culturally homogenous.
