Japanese Anime

One Week:
June 25 – June 29, 2018
9:00 am to 4:00 pm
Taught By:
Dr. Tomoko Hoogenboom, Lecturer, Modern Languages, Linguistics and Intercultural Communication
Target Group: Entering 6th – 12th

This one week-long summer camp experience introduces the participants, who are entering 6th to 12th grade, to Japanese culture with a focus on popular anime. We will analyze how Japanese language, family, and school life are illustrated in anime and the effects of anime in Japanese culture. In addition, students will learn about subtle details of the culture, including manners, holidays, and cuisine. Students will compare American and Japanese cultures based on a large array of anime examples, which helps them expand their knowledge of Japanese culture as well as American culture. Students will be asked to participate in small and large group discussions. At the end of this summer camp, participants will make a short flip-book with their own story-line and drawings based on the Japanese culture they learned.
