JPNT176 PO - Time and Space in Modern Japan

When Offered: Fall 2020.
Instructor(s): K. Kurita
Credit: 1

Are we the products or the producers of our environments? This course offers an interdisciplinary, comparative approach to the literary expression of Japanese temporal and spatial concepts from the 8th century onward, with some reference to China and Korea. The focus, however, is on modern Japan, which in some ways “left Asia,” looking ahead to a very foreign time-space but trying to comprehend it with a language that does not even have a future tense. How have these transitions been negotiated conceptually in media such as literature? Some consideration of other cultural sources, such as cinema and the arts, will enrich the discussion; more practical factors such as urban design, maps and transportation networks will also be examined.
