Event description

Description

Hosted by the Australian National University (ANU Japan Institute) & the University of Canberra (CCCR).

Interweaving meaning, sound and rhythm, Japanese women’s poetry provides a concentrated imaginative response to experience, a voice for expressing political concerns and reconstructing community both within Japan and throughout the Japanese diaspora. Bringing together celebrated women poets writing in the Japanese language, and Japanese literary and cultural studies scholars from Japan, Australia, US and Europe, we will use the medium of translation to examine how artistic experience transcends borders in terms of content, form and culture.

This international symposium is organized by A.Prof. Rina Kikuchi (Shiga University, a visiting fellow at the ANU/UC), with a co-organizer Dr. Carol Hayes (ANU, College of Asia and the Pacific). Some of the poetry readings and performances are held as a part of Poetry on the Move 2017, organized by Dr. Paul Munden, University of Canberra. The entire symposium is supported by funding from the Japanese government research grant (JSPS KAKENHI Grant Number JP 15KK0049).
