  • Advanced Readings in Japanese Literature

    This advanced Japanese class offers students the chance to read classic works of modern Japanese literature in the original as we work our way through each decade of the 20th century. We will consider both the formal properties of fiction and the historical pressures of gender, ethnicity, class, imperialism and globalization. Authors include Natsume Soseki, Akutagawa Ryunosuke, Yoshia Nobuko, Kubokawa Ineko, Mishima Yukiko and Murakami Haruki, as well as ethnic Korean writers Ch’oe Chŏng-hŭi and Yan Sogiru, and others depending on student interest.
