JAPN 62.02 Image and Text in Modernizing Japan

Images and text have been variously combined in the Japanese tradition, from the ancient picture scrolls to today’s manga (comics). This course traces the evolution of such media in early modern Japan, with a focus on the late nineteenth century shift from the “communal reading” of visually-oriented texts to the silent, solitary reading of fiction. Some consideration will also be given to the re-emergence of the visual imagination in film, manga, and animation. Topics include: the nature of “reading,” strategies of mixed media.
