Routledge Handbook Of Modern Japanese Literature

by Rachael Hutchinson, Routledge Handbook Of Modern Japanese Literature Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Routledge Handbook Of Modern Japanese Literature books, The Routledge Handbook of Modern Japanese Literature provides a comprehensive overview of how we study Japanese literature today. Rather than taking a purely chronological approach to the content, the chapters survey the state of the field through a number of pressing issues and themes, examining the ways in which it is possible to read modern Japanese literature and situate it in relation to critical theory. The Handbook examines various modes of literary production (such as fiction, poetry, and critical essays) as distinct forms of expression that nonetheless are closely interrelated. Attention is drawn to the idea of the bunjin as a ‘person of letters’ and a more realistic assessment is provided of how writers have engaged with ideas – not labelled a ‘novelist’ or ‘poet’, but a ‘writer’ who may at one time or another choose to write in various forms. The book provides an overview of major authors and genres by situating them within broader themes that have defined the way writers have produced literature in modern Japan, as well as how those works have been read and understood by different readers in different time periods. The Routledge Handbook of Modern Japanese Literature draws from an international array of established experts in the field as well as promising young researchers. It represents a wide variety of critical approaches, giving the study a broad range of perspectives. This handbook will be of interest to students and scholars of Asian Studies, Literature, Sociology, Critical Theory, and History.

Routledge Handbook Of Premodern Japanese History

by Karl F. Friday, Routledge Handbook Of Premodern Japanese History Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Routledge Handbook Of Premodern Japanese History books, Scholarship on premodern Japan has grown spectacularly over the past four decades, in terms of both sophistication and volume. A new approach has developed, marked by a higher reliance on primary documents, a shift away from the history of elites to broader explorations of social structures, and a re-examination of many key assumptions. As a result, the picture of the early Japanese past now taught by specialists differs radically from the one that was current in the mid-twentieth century. This handbook offers a comprehensive historiographical review of Japanese history up until the 1500s. Featuring chapters by leading historians and covering the early Jōmon, Yayoi, Kofun, Nara, and Heian eras, as well as the later medieval periods, each section provides a foundational grasp of the major themes in premodern Japan. The sections will include: Geography and the environment Political events and institutions Society and culture Economy and technology The Routledge Handbook of Premodern Japanese History is an essential reference work for students and scholars of Japanese, Asian, and World History.

Routledge Handbook Of Sexuality Studies In East Asia

by Mark McLelland, Routledge Handbook Of Sexuality Studies In East Asia Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Routledge Handbook Of Sexuality Studies In East Asia books, This collection brings together cutting-edge work by established and emerging scholars focusing on key societies in the East Asian region: China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Japan, North and South Korea, Mongolia and Vietnam. This scope enables the collection to reflect on the nature of the transformations in constructions of sexuality in highly developed, developing and emerging societies and economies. Both Japan and China have established traditions of ‘sexuality’ studies reflecting longstanding indigenous understandings of sex as well as more recent developments which interface with Euro-American medical and psychological understandings. Authors reflect upon the complex colonial and economic interactions and cultural flows which have affected the East Asian region over the last two centuries. They trace local flows of ideas instead of defaulting to Euro-American paradigms for sexuality studies. Through looking at regional and global exchanges of ideas about sexuality, this volume adds considerably to our understanding of the East Asian region and contributes to wider discussions of social transformation, modernisation and globalisation. It will be essential reading in undergraduate and graduate programs in sexuality studies, gender studies, women’s studies and masculinity studies, as well as in anthropology, sociology, history, cultural studies, area studies and health sciences.

by Yoon Sun Yang, Routledge Handbook Of Modern Korean Literature Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Routledge Handbook Of Modern Korean Literature books, The Routledge Handbook of Modern Korean Literature provides a comprehensive overview of a Korean literary tradition, which is understood as a multifaceted nexus of practices, both homegrown and transnational. The handbook discusses the perspectives from which modern Korean literature has thus far been defined, analyzing which voices have been enunciated, underappreciated, or completely silenced and how we can enrich our understanding of it. Taking up diverse transnational and interdisciplinary standpoints, this volume aims to encourage readers not to treat modern Korean literature as a self-evident category but to examine it anew as an uncultivated and uncharted space, unearthing its internal chasms and global connections. Divided into five parts, the themes covered include the following: Literature and power Borders and boundaries Rationality in literature and its limits Language, ethnicity, and translation Korean literature in the changing mediascape. By introducing new conceptual paradigms to the field of modern Korean literature, this book will appeal to students and scholars of Korean, East Asian, and world literature alike.

Luxemburg In Der Welt 2

by Luc Marteling, Luxemburg In Der Welt 2 Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Luxemburg In Der Welt 2 books, Luxemburg ist klein, dafür aber (fast) überall. Das behaupten Luc Marteling und Steve Müller. Um ihre These zu stützen, waren die beiden Abenteurer-Autoren wieder fleißig unterwegs - immer auf der Suche nach dem Grand-Duché in der großen Welt: In Châteauneuf-du-Pape lernten sie den Bienheureux Pierre de Luxembourg kennen und in Paris ergötzten sie sich an der toponymischen Hinterlassenschaft von François de Luxembourg. In Oberbayern wandelten sie auf den Spuren der großherzoglichen Familie und im Liceo Luxemburgo in San Salvador gab's statt Pauken und Noten einen Empfang mit Pauken und Trompeten. In Südafrika landeten sie vor den Ruinen der Luxemburg-Farm und im venezolanischen Mérida standen sie vor den geschlossenen Toren des Hotels Luxemburgo. Dafür standen ihnen im brasilianischen und honduranischen Luxemburgo alle Türen offen.
