Course Description: From the Meiji period onward, literature may be read as double translation of Western modernity and pre-Meiji cultural forms. Literary translation plays a central role in the construction of modern Japanese language and modern national literature. This course considers relations among language, culture, gender, race and ethnicity, power, nation and empire. The class is designed to give a greater understanding of Japanese history, Japanese literature, and postcolonial and gender theory, and to rethink institutions and systems of knowledge created within modernity. Text: AND THEN by Souseki Natsume (Translated by Norma Fields, Tuttle Publishing, 2011); and materials distributed in class. Assessment: class attendance and participation (20%), final paper (25%), workshop (15%), critical response papers (20%), and a final exam (20%).
