(“)Critical Posthumanism(”) in Japanese Contexts: An Inquiry into Materiality, Correlationality, and Animality in Japanese Writing, Art, and Film
Workshop at Rikkyo University (Tokyo) on July 8, 2017 (2 pm - 7:30 pm),
room 1103 (main building)
An intensifying transpacific interconnectedness (Matsuda) confirms a
perception of the Pacific Ocean as a “Sea of Islands” (Hau‘ofa). Against
this background, participants of this workshop will critically analyse
the discursive construction of insularity in the Pacific. The presenters
will investigate imaginations of islands as deserted spaces (Deleuze),
isolated heterotopias and heterochronies (Foucault).
