ATS3309 Study Tour Western Japan - Balance Payment


Required Fields

Program Details

This intensive study program enables students to recognise and assess the nature of consumption in Japan.  This unit addresses  the diversity of scales of production, and examines the cultural discourses accompany and frame the marketing and consumption of consumer goods. Students travel via Hiroshima to Osaka and Kyoto, experiencing these places as collections of contrasting neighbourhood and villages each with their own cultures of production and consumption.

Students come out of their experience with a more sophisticated understanding of Japanese society and culture, and the nature of production and consumption in a post-industrial, increasingly globalised world.
