This course will introduce students to the study of Asia from a multidisciplinary perspective. Using various disciplines in the humanities, social science and commerce fields, students will review how various disciplines intersect to create a fuller understanding of Asia.
This course is taught by different instructors. In fall 2016, we will explore diverse issues in contemporary China and Japan through a thematic approach focusing on communication. The course will provide facts, theories, and analytic tools to look at language, gender, culture, media, and social media. It also provides a broad overview of sociolinguistics, and anthropological linguistics, communication, and media culture. The topics cover a broad range of how language, communication discourse, and gender ideologies are shaped in Chinese and Japanese cultures, such as constructing and deconstructing language, culture, intercultural communication, and gender in society, and how people position their ideas.
As a third-year course in Asian Studies, this course promotes a deeper understanding of contemporary China and Japan. Upon completing this course, students should be able to: a) understand the major issues and trends in current Chinese and Japanese language, gender, and media in both theory and practice; b) enhance critical thinking from sociolinguistic and anthropological approaches; c) be able to analyze Japanese and Chinese society and cultures from multiple angles.
