Japanese Society and the New Millennium (6 points)


Leader: Prof Ross Mouer

Clayton First semester 2003 (Day)

Synopsis: This unit surveys Japanese society and culture since 1945. It focuses on basic social structure and lifestyles in contemporary Japan, and on the various challenges which are confronting Japanese society. After examining important aspects of Japanese society such as its mosaic of inequality, the organisation of work, the education system and the family, the unit considers selected areas of social life which are currently being debated in Japan. Special attention will be given to Japan's international interface and to the multiculturalisation of Japanese society at the beginning of the new Millennium.
