SOCI 249 - Family & Gender in Japan
W 6:30 – 9:00pm
WGR 311

Family and Gender issues are central concerns in Japanese debates about domestic policy, values and the nation’s ability to develop in the 21st century.  This course will move between historical and contemporary definitions of family and gender to introduce the student to institutional structures and ideas of change in contemporary Japan.  While focusing on Japan, the course will incorporate theses of gender East and West with the goal of identifying ideas and institutions which can serve as touchstones for a better understanding of Japanese society, and for a reflexive comparison with the US and other societies.
