Course Description
Using manga (Japanese comics) and anime (Japanese animation) as a window, we will look into the formation and transformation of contemporary Japanese Society in the postwar era. Starting from a discussion of the major theoretical perspectives on the Japanese society, we will focus on salient aspects of social changes in contemporary Japan, with a particular focus on how these have been represented in manga, anime and related popular cultural products, including corporation, employment, politics, family, gender, education, youth, health, environment and foreign affairs. Our objectives are twofold, both to understand the significance of manga and anime in the Japanese society and to deepen our understanding of the Japanese society by locating the major themes and issues presented in manga and anime in a larger social, economic, political, cultural and historical contexts. An experiential learning approach will be adopted to relate students personal experiences in reading and consuming manga and anime to broader social issues in Japan.

其實就系一堆宅宅在high...不過受益匪淺,其實是社會學的範疇,講得也比較深入,不止系動漫,仲有背後ge深層次社會原因,上左之後看動漫會有唔同感受

Course Description
透過動漫次文化了解當代日本社會,其實就是以研究動漫畫為主,大概是為避免外人認為大學生研究動漫畫不正經,才順帶把「日本社會」這元素加在課程上以正其名。但以動漫為切入點確實十分有趣,淺入深出,教授了不少社會文化理論
