Welcome To Japan
The Japan Studies faculty of the University of Pittsburgh, in collaboration with the Asian Studies Center has created this dynamic set of lessons that explore how Japan has influenced and been influenced by Asia and the world culturally, socially, and politically. Module-based learning units divide the material to allow you to explore Japan through the visual and performing arts, economics, history, language usage, politics, social issues, and music. Broader themes that address issues of global relevance, such as the connection between traditional and modern transformations, or ways of forging national identities are also explored.
This project made possible through the generous funding by the National Endowment for the Humanities and by the Japan Iron and Steel Federation and the Mitsubishi Endowments at the University of Pittsburgh.
