Join Dr. Naomi Fukumori, Associate Professor in Japanese at Ohio State University, for a presentation that will reinforce the idea that women were not silent subjects in the period, but spoke and wrote for themselves, even when the broader culture did not expect them to do so. This talk will examine the moments marked by reticence in both autobiographical and fictional writings—such as Sei Shōnagon’s Pillow Book and Murasaki Shikibu’s Tale of Genji –to see how these women’s postures of reluctant conversation deftly package heady revelations that would both satisfy the demands of their audience and provide these writers cover.
