This module is the AEAS-module on Japanese politics. It continues and builds upon the corresponding AEAS-module of the summer term by looking at major aspects of Japanese politics through the lense of institutional theories.
Students will be required to prepare a written assignment and give an oral presentation on their topic during the winter term. We will discuss the respective research questions and designs. Deadline for handing in the written assignment will be March 15th.
We will also use AI to work with original Japanese texts and websites so students are requested to bring a laptop or tablet to class.
To sweeten the course a bit we will also enjoy scenes fromf the greatest Japanese movie on politics ever made.
