I WELCOME OUTSIDE THOUGHTS AND IDEAS.

Dissertation ideas:

1. Pop culture influence on politics + international relations (+ domestic policy? too broad?)
see: SMAP -> China perf. cancelled in light of Sino-Japanese tensions increasing over Senkaku etc. etc.

2. Whether pop culture is a reflection of modern values or whether it directly affects modern values
see: spread of variety shows, manzai etc., regional differences --> Kansai vs Kanto etc.

3. The popularity/lack thereof of left-wing politics in Japan and why
see: rise of nationalism and extremism, conflict with China and Korea, compare pre- and post-war period

4. How being an island nation has affected and/or formed its national identity
see: ????
