Course Name: 
Modern Women Writers Speak Their Minds

This seminar will examaine modern Japanese women’s fiction and critical essays that represent a primer to Japan’s conflicted socio-cultural-gender history in light of the country’s complex psychological relationship to the West. The focus will be on a Japan that is far from the stereotypical image of a conformist and homogenerous society. No prior knowledge of Japanese language or literature is required.
