This course deals with the social, economic, and political factors influencing women's position in postwar Japan. We will investigate the historical diversity in the operations of gender in social and cultural life through an interdisciplinary approach drawing on literature, social/historical studies, manga, and television. Some of the figures we will meet include entertainers (foreign bar hostesses and geisha), OL(office ladies), activists and politicians, factory workers, shufu (housewives), and shojo (young women). All readings are in English.
