Japan: An Exploration of Traditional and Contemporary Arts, Culture, and Game Design

This study abroad course explores both traditional and contemporary arts and culture of Japan, with an emphasis in game design and technological arts. During the spring 2023 semester, the class will meet bi-weekly to discuss readings, films, visual arts, language, food, and cultural norms of Japan.  Discussions will dive into the psychology and way of life of the Japanese people, and students will gain insight into a culture where the old and new collide. Basic language and cultural etiquette lessons will prepare students to travel in Japan.  The course culminates in a study abroad trip to Japan that includes stays in Tokyo and Kyoto and a day trip in Narai hiking through the Nakasendo trail.
