This is a study of Japanese popular culture through visual media called manga (Japanese comics) and anime (Japanese animated cartoons). This module provides an understanding of how certain visual media have developed in Japan and how they are presented and received in the Japanese context, and how they reflect social and cultural issues through analysing these works. Students will be given an overview of the historical and social context of these cultural products in Japan, then go on to look at individual manga and anime in more depth in order to analyse aspects of Japanese culture.
