Profile

    My research interests center on Japanese modern literature, particularly wartime and postwar fiction and criticism. Specifically, I am interested in the debates on “Politics and Literature(Seiji to Bungaku)”, “National Literature(Kokumin Bungaku)”, and “Overcoming Modernity(Kindai no chōkoku)” which took place during the 1930s-1950s and influenced the literature of the time.
    Debates on “Politics and Literature” broke out in the years 1932 and 1946, “National Literature” in 1937 and 1952, and “Overcoming Modernity” in 1942 and 1959. This sequence of debates took on what are perhaps the most significant issues in Japanese modern literary history, “Marxism” and “Nationalism” in Japanese modern literature.
    It was a time of war: the War between Japan and China, World War Ⅱ, the Korean War, the Cold War, and the Vietnam War. Can literature change a world of war?  This was a serious question in the debates.
    And yet, during these debates, authors took a stand against war on one hand while cooperating with war on the other. In the complex context of revolutionary theory and national ideology, how did authors confront War? And why couldn't they stop War? I have been working on these matters as a literary problem.
