This course begins with an overview of popular and anthropological ideas and theories about human diversity. Japanese ideas of "race" and "ethnicity" are analyzed comparatively. We then explore the history and cultures of Japanese ethnic groups and minorities. Among the groups we will focus on are the ("aboriginal") Ainu, resident Koreans, migrant workers (of Japanese ancestry) from South America, so-called "international marriages" and children of mixed parentage, Burakumin ("outcastes"), "sexual minorities" (i.e., gays, lesbians, bisexuals), and others. Anthropological readings are augmented by novels and short stories, comics, videos, and films.
