Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2014-2015.

The course will focus on Japanese language texts produced by the Circle Village collective established in rural Kyushu in 1959, especially the writings of Morisaki Kazue and Tanigawa Gan. It will consider the many resonances between this literature and Gayatri Spivak's writings on the rural as the site of "remains" bypassed by capitalist modernity, the spectralization of the rural as a site of labor, migrancy, the figuration of sexual difference, and so forth. Reading knowledge of modern Japanese is required.

When Offered Fall.
