DEPARTMENT OF JAPANESE STUDIES - ELECTIVE FOR CSA-PHD PROGRAMME
JS5203 Japanese Literary & Performance Studies
This module uses selected texts (including literary writings, historical documents, film and paintings) to examine the Japanese literary and performance discourse in both modern and pre-modern times. Texts produced outside Japan will also be included in order to gain a wider perspective. The extensive scope of texts use and the rigorous critical reading trainings students will undertake will provide them with an in-depth understanding of the practice of literary and performance studies in Japan.
