The Asian Studies Program leads a short-term study abroad program in Japan. This program explores the wealth of Japan’s art and literature that developed from the seventeenth to nineteenth centuries. Examining issues related to visual and literary representations of gender and sexuality during the Edo period (1603-1868), the course traces the roots of Japanese popular art and literature, and offers new ways of approaching and understanding contemporary mass culture. We will view performances of kabuki and puppet theater plays, visit a samurai castle and museum collections of original woodblock prints and rare books, participate in tours of important cultural and historic sites in Tokyo, attend a cooking and a kimono dressing class.
The program is held at Chiba University in June. Open to all UC students in good standing.
