EAS470H1: “Post-Fukushima” Literature and Culture


The course examines literature, film, and other cultural products that emerged in the aftermath of the earthquake and tsunami that hit Northeast Japan on March 11, 2011, as well as in the ensuing nuclear crisis at the Fukushima Tokyo Daiichi powerplant. We will explore the distinctive aesthetic forms and imaginaries that responded to such natural and human-made disasters.
