Description: Japanese popular culture is constantly evolving in the face of internal and external influence. Popular Culture, Globalization and Japan examines this evolution from a new and challenging perspective by focusing on the movements of Japanese popular culture into and out of Japan. The book argues that a key factor behind the changing nature of Japanese popular culture lies in its engagement with globalization. Essays from a team of leading international scholars illustrate this crucial interaction. Drawing on rich empirical content from a series of interdisciplinary perspectives, this book looks at the complex movement of Japanese popular culture as it traverses international borders. Chapters on music, manga, media studies, and a range of contemporary popular cultural artifacts illustrate the problematic and complex relations between flows of ideas into and out of Japan.
