The final paper should be a comparative study of two (or more) sources on the cultural representation of modern and post-modern Japan. Within that parameter, you can choose your own topic. Comparing a reading assignment with one of the selected films is an encouraged option. In the paper, you will compare the cultural representations in other resources, specifically how the cultural images are portrayed over time and across genre and uncover the implicit assumptions of the representations.
