Press Any Button to Get Started: Approaching Japanese Culture and Society Through Video Games

Project Description

This project will study notable Japanese-developed video games as representations of Japanese society and culture. What are the images of Japan that are presented in these games, and why were they created? In addition, an argument will be made for the incorporation of video games into liberal arts core curriculum.
