20 Credits SPRING

Aims/Description: In this semester, we will apply the understanding developed in EAS3031 Researching Japan 1 to a research project on stardom, celebrity, and politics in Japan. You will answer a research question of your own choice by choosing an appropriate methodology, organising your time and reflecting on the research process both individually and collectively. At the end of the module you will produce a research output and display it as part of a programme-wide and School-wide event to specialised/non-specialised audiences. The research outputs and bibliographies will be published in an online exhibition space dedicated to Level 3 Researching Projects at SEAS.

Teaching Methods: Lectures, Seminars, Independent Study
Assessment: Project/ portfolio
