JAPAN ORIENTATION Japan plays a very significant role in the contemporary world, yet it is still seen by many as an unknown and distant culture. This focussed short course will allow students to explore the latest approaches to Japanese Studies. The programme will be delivered by our specialised Centre for Japanese Studies (CJS) and will concentrate on stimulating discussion with speakers who are leading researchers in the field of Japanese Studies, in culture, history, international relations, business, media and much more. The course is suited to those currently at university who are interested in the latest approaches to East Asian studies, and will draw upon the Centre’s dedication to producing excellent interdisciplinary research on Japan. It will provide an introduction to gaining a deeper understanding of the past, present and future of Japan. Japan Orientation is one of the accredited modules within the University’s four-week International Summer School.
