This course looks at how contemporary Japanese society is changing in the context of globalization and demographic pressures (population aging and shrinking) with a special focus on the consequences of these changes for gender and diversity. From welfare to employment, immigration to gender equity, contemporary Japan is facing a range of policy and social issues that will shape Japanese society in the coming decades. How is Japan adapting to our changing world, and what challenges and hurdles remain going forward?

The format of this course is a series of lectures taught by various lecturers with a range of areas of expertise, giving the course an interdisciplinary dimension. Due to ongoing border restrictions and concerns about the spread of coronavirus, the course will be held online over Zoom, Moodle and Slack. Ochanomizu University students will either join online or in the classroom. The course will be primarily conducted through real-time lectures, with a small number (2 or 3 periods) of on-demand components. All real-time lectures will be held between 9:00 and 12:10 Japan Standard Time, with precise details to be determined later.
