Course Description: This course examines the history of Japanese film and television animation, or what the English speaking world refers to as “anime.” It proceeds chronologically through Japanese animation history in order to see how the industry, culture, and various styles of Japanese animation developed and crystallized, particularly in the postwar era. A range of animated works are viewed and discussed from a variety of angles and contexts germane to the particular work at hand. Topics reflect the course's emphasis, examining anime as expressive of particular artistic merit and themes (including genre, national identity, gender and/or sexuality, cyborgs and artificial intelligence, transnationalism and globalization, environmentalism, depictions of fantasy versus reality) as well as key industrial concerns such as advertising/marketing strategies and media mix committee development.
