The MA in Interdisciplinary Japanese Studies (Part Time) from the University of East Anglia responds to our contemporary moment in which globalisation and future-oriented concerns put Japan and its cultures at the centre of debates on urgent issues such as technology and digital innovation, population change, media representation, and health and ageing. The course draws on UEA’s specialist research and teaching to position Japanese Studies in relation to the major humanities disciplines including literature, history, politics, and art. Through our unique interdisciplinary approach, we celebrate UEA’s distinctive approach to engaging with Japan.
On this course you will explore Japanese arts and culture, society and history through a diverse range of disciplinary approaches and methods. You’ll learn about the history of ideas and engage with key writings about Japan, and think critically about the direction of contemporary Japanese studies. You’ll be taught by experts from across the many disciplines that fall under Interdisciplinary Japanese Studies – including art history, film and media studies, history, politics, and international relations. And you’ll gain a valuable perspective on the subject through input from experts in Japanese arts, cultures and heritage researching at the Sainsbury Institute for the Study of Japanese Arts and Cultures.
