|授業題目||Multicultural Project: Popular Music in Modern Japanese Society II|
|授業の概要||This is the second of a two-course series that examines society in Japan through its popular music from the Meiji Restoration to today. This second course will focus on selected events and trends in Japanese society from the 1960s to the turn of the millenium as well as on the diverse styles of popular musical expression that have emerged in the same period. (*It is highly recommended, but not required, for students to have taken the first course in order to take this second course.)|
|学習の到達目標||This is a course designed for joint participation by international and Japanese students. By the end of the course, students will have learned (or reviewed) in English some key events and trends of roughly the latter half of the Showa period (or from the 1960s) to the 2000s. At the same time, they will have had the chance to compare how more recent generational groups including their grandparents', parents' and their own have expressed their thoughts and emotions through song - both in Japan and in the home countries of international students. As the final project, students in small teams will prepare and deliver a presentation on an approved topic of their choice and lead an informal class discussion thereafter.|
