世界文学と東アジアI(3)

Fact, Fiction, and Everything in between: Autobiographical Prose in Modern Japan (and Beyond)
This course will explore the development of autobiographical prose in modern and contemporary Japan, focusing on the birth, growth and decline of the “shishōsetsu”, a type of autobiographical writing that has been touted by some as one of the few original forms of modern Japanese literature. We will also analyse the relationship between “shishōsetsu” and other literary genres, as well as its influence on contemporary world literary production.
At the end of this course, the students will have sufficient information about the historical, social and cultural background of the works read in class; they will be able to contextualise the "shishōsetsu" and related genres, as well as analyse relevant concepts such as fiction, reality, mimesis, etc, from a new perspective.

The format of the following classes will depend on the pandemic situation and on whether the students are in Japan or not. The ideal is to have more than 50% of our classes face-to-face, but provisions will be made in case this is not possible for some (or all) of the registered students.
