Screening Japanese Modernity: Japanese History Through Film
CEAS 216
Spring 2019 not offered

The word "screening" is a double entendre. On the one hand, it simply refers to the fact that we will examine representation of Japanese modernity through the visual medium of film. But, more importantly, we will screen (problematizing/criticizing) the more orthodox understanding of Japanese modernity. Throughout the semester, we will discuss the relationship between the dominant historical narratives and their filmic representations and how these films often subvert these existing narratives.
