Literatures of the Japanese Empire
CEAS 300
Spring 2019 not offered

This course will survey select works of literature that were produced during Japan's Imperial period, in disparate locations across the Empire (including Korea, Taiwan, and the 'home islands' of Japan itself). It will also grapple with literary reflections on the experience of Empire, penned in the wake of Japan's defeat in 1945. We will conceive of 'literature' broadly, including under this heading not only texts in the traditional sense, but other forms of media, as well. By considering a selection of texts from this period, we will strive to attend to some of the contested and competing desires of individuals and entities seeking to navigate conditions of empire, colonialism, and war.
