Youth Cultures in Post-Bubble Japan: From Rebellious Schoolgirls to Reclusive Men
How have young people navigated their lives in the so-called "lost decades" in post-bubble Japan, against the backdrop of a rapidly ageing society? In this lecture, Professor Sachiko Horiguchi will provide an overview of changing youth cultures since the 1990s, and will highlight how representations of gendered subcultures- from rebellious kogal high school girls to reclusive otaku & hikikomori men- symbolize both the stagnation and transformation that Japan has experienced in the last three decades.

This event is a part of YCAPS' "Getting to Know Japan Series" co-sponsored by The Japan Foundation Center for Global Partnership.
