Course summary

Are you curious about Japan? Would you like to know more about its place in the world and its cultural identity? Whether you are already familiar with some aspects of Japanese culture or not, the MA in Interdisciplinary Japanese Studies will give you a solid grounding in the study of the country’s art, literature, history, and politics. Looking at a variety of topics through the lens of Japan will also open for you new ways of engaging with our globalised world. You’ll learn about a variety of research methods from several humanities disciplines and benefit from UEA’s expertise on Japan, equipping you with the tools to actively participate in shaping the vibrant field of Japanese Studies in the future.

ABOUT

Based in Norwich, one of the UK’s most rapidly growing research hubs of Japanese Studies, this course will give you access to resources across several institutions located here. The Sainsbury Institute for the Study of Japanese Arts and Cultures will introduce you to its world-class research and outreach program on Japanese visual cultures; experts on Japan from across the UEA faculty will share their experience and disciplinary insights; and the unique collection of Japanese art and archaeology at the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts will offer an opportunity for direct contact with Japan’s art and material culture. Drawing on the synergies between these institutions and their resources, this course offers you an outstanding combination of expert knowledge, active research networks, and important primary sources, preparing you for a successful and exciting global career.

This course embodies UEA’s vision for borderless interdisciplinary inquiry and positions Japanese Studies at the nexus of the major humanities disciplines including literature, history, politics, and art. How do contemporary experiences of migration and alienation reverberate in Japan’s literature? What impact will the 2020 Tokyo Olympics have on international relations? How do popular Japanese art forms such as manga find their way into museums? Which historical issues dominate Japan’s regional politics and relations with its neighbours? When did Japan become modern and how?.

World-leading experts in Japanese Studies will be working together with you to answer these questions and encourage you to come up with your own.
