Primary Instructor:

This course on modern Japanese fiction examines how novels and short stories written after 1868 engage the issue of national, cultural, and social identities. The inquiry in the course simultaneously moves in two directions. We examine how fiction written in an age of national print-capitalism participates in the work of building a common understanding of a nation and its people, but we also explore how the same fiction can spotlight divisions of gender, sexual orientation, class, generation, and region.
