Tenkō in Trans-War Japan: Politics, Culture, History

 30 June–2 July 2017

Member Book, Stahl, Trauma, Dissociation and Re-enactment in Japanese Literature and Film

Dear Colleagues,

I am happy to announce that my new book, Trauma, Dissociation and Re-enactment in Japanese Literature and Film (Routledge, 2017, ISBN: 9781138733251 238 pp.), has published.

Description

Japanese literature and film have been approached using lenses such as language, genre and ideology. Yet, despite a succession of major social traumas that have marked, and in many ways shaped and defined much of modern Japan, Japanese fiction and cinema have not often been examined psychoanalytically.
