Between Ruin and Remembrance: Japanese Fiction of the Postwar Period

My proposed research project examines Japanese fiction of the immediate postwar period (1945-1954). This study will analyze the heterogeneous literary responses to the period of radical change and upheaval following the war, focusing in particular on questions of memory and representations of national and cultural space. It seeks to examine the central role that literature played in shaping intellectual discourse and consciousness during this period.
