Description: From the never-ending stream of new manga and anime to the new Godzilla movie released earlier this year, Japanese literature and media has shown an appeal that stretches far beyond its borders. While it may be easy to get caught up in the action of a well-choreographed fight scene or the beauty of a finely written paragraph, it is important to ask how Japanese literature and media influence conceptions of Japanese history and culture in the United States? In Japanese Storytelling, students will discuss the different ways that stories are told, from anime and movies to folktales and novels, and how they influence the way their culture is viewed. They will improve their ability to critically understand different texts and media through group discussion, short essays, and projects.
