University of Michigan, Ann Arbor
One of the world’s great early twentieth-century modernists, the Japanese novelist Natsume Sōseki was an author of astonishing stylistic diversity whose work spanned a number of divides, including, to name just a few: "East/West," "modern/premodern," "Japan/China," "metropole/colony," "literature/science," and "homosociality/heterosociality." As such, Sōseki's work offers fertile ground for scholarship from a wide range of perspectives. With the centenary of his death approaching in 2016 and the recent release by prestigious presses of a number of new English translations of his work, interest in Sōseki is poised to increase well beyond the world of Japanese literary studies.
"Sōseki's Diversity" is a symposium exploring all aspects of Sōseki’s works, to be held on April 19 and 20, 2014, at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. The symposium will coincide with the 100th Anniversary of the first installment in the Asahi Shinbun, on April 20, 1914, of Sōseki’s best-known novel, Kokoro.
