ASCL 60.93 Countercultures of Japan’s 1960s

Like their American counterparts, Japanese youth in the 1960s occupied university administration buildings, protested war and imperialism, and denounced discrimination, exploitation, and the status quo.  This course will explore their counterculture through the music, fiction, film, and comics (manga) of that decade. Topics include: ambivalent attitudes towards the U.S., generational discord, new conceptions of love and sex, the legacy of war and the relationship of culture to politics. Most of the course will be conducted in Japanese, but some theoretical and historical issues will be researched and discussed in English.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
