“Why do you want to study the social and cultural history of modern Japan right now?”

Why I am interested in taking this class for part of my GE requirements is partially because of my ethnic background being Korean, and also because I am just generally interested in East Asian history. Japan has a history of conflict and tension with Korea, but since I’ve lived my whole life in America I am sort of far removed from it and I am interested to see if I can learn more about it. Also in general I find Japanese culture interesting and I enjoy learning about different cultures so I am looking forward to this class.
