In this talk, Dr Damian Flanagan explores the shifting sexual norms of Japan’s literary history from the Edo Period to the present. How have the great writers of Japan from Ihara Saikaku and Natsume Soseki to Yukio Mishima and Haruki Murakami responded to the challenge of these shifting sexual norms and how does understanding the sexuality of the age change our understanding of their works?
