ARTH 160 - Art of Japanese Manga and Anime


3 Hour(s)

In this course, we will explore Japan’s “coolest” export: global manga and anime. Students will read, view, and analyze classic examples of Japan’s early visual literature while developing an awareness of Japanese visual culture. A focus will be placed on works produced following the end of World War II, especially the books of Osamu Tezuka, whose compassion and talent led him to seek a new beginning for a society left in the shadows of the atomic age. His manga were full of exciting possibilities and promise for children of the war, and mark the beginning of a new modern branch of literature with global appeal. Manga became a leading industry in Japan, and an important part of Twentieth Century Visual Literature.
