In this seminar we will be exploring media theory in relation to Japan: how media has been thought about, written about, and created within Japan, and how media theorists from across the world have used "Japan" and its cultural products as a key element in their thinking. We will investigate media in Japan in relation to language, nation, gender, technology, disability, the environment, and more, and will both examine and produce creative works (film, poetry, visual art, sound, programming) as a form of critical practice. No Japanese language knowledge required, as all the core readings will be in English; some Japanese-language supplemental readings will be available for graduate students with sufficient language ability.

When Offered Spring.
