Yusaku Horiuchi (Dartmouth), Saori Katada (USC), & Megumi Naoi (UCSD), “Professionalization Session: Strategies for Teaching Japanese Politics”

July 20 @ 8:00 pm - 9:15 pm EDT

U.S. ET: July 20 (Thursday), 8 – 9:15 PM

JST: July 21 (Friday), 9 – 10:15 AM

Zoom Registration: Link.


As part of our professionalization series, we will discuss strategies to teach about Japan in political science. We will discuss (1) ways to teach about Japan, as a standalone Japanese politics course, as a case study in general comparative/IR courses (e.g. electoral politics, political economy etc.), or part of a course focused on a world region (e.g. East Asian politics or IPE); and (2) strategies to engage students at three different levels–undergraduate, MA, and PhD–and to encourage and advise them to incorporate Japan in their research. As many of us are creating or revising course syllabi at this time, we hope this session will be useful for JPOSS participants.

Presenters: Yusaku Horiuchi (Dartmouth College), Saori Katada (University of Southern California), Megumi Naoi (University of California, San Diego)
