Speaker, Richard B., Jr., Ed.; Kawada, Louise Myers, Ed.
Japan Studies Association Journal, v2 1996
This yearbook presents new perspectives and materials on Japan that are engaging, relatively jargon-free, and shaped so that their usefulness in a college classroom is readily apparent. The yearbook represents an example of the potential for genuine scholarship that lies within interdisciplinary studies. Articles are divided among five thematic sections: (1) "Japan Studies and the Arts" ("A Challenge to the Orientalism of Whistler: Hiroshige's Influence on Monet and Van Gogh," Fay Beauchamp; and "Paradigms of Japanese Culture as Reflected through Music and the Related Arts," Stephen R. Fuller); (2) "Inquiry into the Japanese Self" ("The Japanese Self," Sheila Fling; and "Recipe for Self and Soul in Decadent Times: Reflections on the Post-war Japanese Literary Sensibility," Louise Myers Kawada); (3) "Japan Studies and Curriculum" ("An Inquiry Unit on Japan for Undergraduate Methods Students in Elementary Education," Richard B. Speaker, Jr.; and "Infusing Japan Studies into the College Curriculum through Multicultural Literacy Courses," Elizabeth L. Willis); (4) "Japan Studies in International Perspectives" ("Japan and Russia: The Northern Territories Issue in the Post-War Era," Andrew S. Szarka; "Colonial Japan in Micronesia, 1914 to 1944," Dirk Anthony Ballendorf; and "China and Japan: Diverging Paths," Connie Mauney); and (5) "Reports on the Japan Studies Seminar in Japan, 1995" ("Report on the 1995 Seminar in Japan," Richard B. Speaker, Jr.; and "Impressions of a Japan Studies Faculty Development Seminar, Summer, 1995," Louise Myers Kawada). (BT)
