This seminar examines the exploitation, discrimination, and marginalization of Japan’s main minority groups’ the Ainu, Okinawans, Koreans and burakumin’ from the 1870s to the present. Construction of discriminatory views and processes of ostracism are major themes. Other topics include: community formation, anti-establishmentarian minority movements, state policies of assimilation and control, inter-minority relations, and the politics of minority identity. Discrimination against non-ethnic and non-racial minorities ’such as victims of atomic bombings and environmental pollution’ will also be discussed.
