In 2020W Term 2 the title of this course will be "YMkai: The Strange and Supernatural in Early Modern Japanese Popular Culture:

This course will focus primarily on yMkai in Edo period (1600-1868) popular culture, including ghost stories, illustrations, and plays. Background will be provided through readings from earlier periods. The representation of the supernatural will be contextualized through secondary readings on the historical, social, and religious environments. We will explore the popularity of transformed creatures (bake-mono) in the period and examine the functions they fulfilled.
