LecturesSILS offers a liberal arts curriculum. We do not focus on one particular field, but rather offer a broad range of courses. This will allow you to nd the eld or combination of elds that particularly interests you. There are many different sides to every issue, and the education at SILS will provide you with the ability to approach each issue from various perspectives in order to analyze it more deeply. For this reason, we have created seven different study clusters to enable you to become a well-rounded and flexible individual. Each cluster is divided into three levels: Introductory, Intermediate and Advanced. Instead of immediately throwing yourself into one particular discipline, take the classes which interest you and gradually work towards acquiring specialized knowledge.* Although there is no limit to the number of classes you can take from each cluster, you need to take Introductory Courses from at least three different clusters.lenges ectives.Governance, Peace, Human Rights and International RelationsCommunicationExpressionCulture, Mind and Body, and CommunityAbout one of the courses you can learn in this ClusterAbout one of the courses you can learn in this ClusterAbout one of the courses you can learn in this ClusterAbout one of the courses you can learn in this Cluster“Word Structure and Vocabulary”“Video Game Studies”“Selected Topics in Cultural Studies”Foreign Policy, Human Security, International Relations, Peace Studies, Politics, Political Economy, Public Policy, etc.Applied Linguistics, Historical Linguistics, Phonetics, Phonology, Pragmatics, Semantics, Sociolinguistics, Syntax, etc.Through the study of words, this class touches on many areas of linguistics, including semantics (meaning), phonology (sound system), morphology (word structure) and historical linguistics. We look at where new words come from and how their meanings and pronunciation change over time, with a focus on English and Japanese. Students analyze linguistic data and discuss examples of words of new words in our everyday lives.Video games are a composite medium that combine the text of novels, the audiovisuals of lm/TV, and, most importantly, rule-based systems of play. Games thus reect and create our contemporary culture, and while they are often blamed for social ills, studying them means to understand how they express complex stories and arguments through play.The focus of the course is Japanese animation. My approach is partly inspired by the Japanese director Takahata Isao’s view: a good work of anime neither teaches a moral lesson to its viewers nor simply draws them into its own fantasy world; instead, it makes us reect on the questions and issues that are vital to both human communities and non-human beings.Associate ProfessorAKIBA, TakeshiAssociate ProfessorMUEHLEISEN, VictoriaAssistant ProfessorHARTZHEIM, Bryan HikariProfessorYOSHIMOTO, MitsuhiroAnthropology, Comparative Culture, Cultural Studies, Gender Studies, Sociology, Urban Studies, Psychology, etc.Art Studies, Creative Writing, Film Studies, Literature, Media Studies, Photography, Theatre Studies, etc.Keywords〉〉Keywords〉〉Keywords〉〉Keywords〉〉Students in this course will learn how the law in its social context has a broad impact on the lives of minorities through the historical and contemporary experiences of minority groups (such as African Americans, Asian Americans, and Hispanic people) in the U.S., in an interactive atmosphere that promotes deeper exchange and understanding.“Minorities and the Law in the United States”9
