Outline and Purpose of the Course The Outline and Purpose of the Course
We will consider the varieties of contemporary art though diverse works of art from the same periods. Specifically, while studying various aspects of art from the 1960s onward, known as contemporary art, we will consider how art changed in the former Eastern European region while it was involved in the societal circumstances, also touching on the development of postwar Japanese art.
 Overview of English phonemes, particularly the involvement of syllable structure, stress assignment and morphology, and discussion of not-yet-solved problems and problems that hold divided opinions. A text will be used, but we will not be bound to it during class. Weight will be placed on students analyzing the data themselves.
Course Goals  Students will gain basic knowledge about English phonemes and develop their ability to solve various problems relating to phonemes themselves, without accepting established theories.
