Japanese Feminist Debates: A Century of Contention on Sex, Love, and Labor charts the varied terrain of controversies on questions of gender and sexuality that have animated women and men in modern Japan. It describes the rondan, a public sphere in which academic, journalistic, and political voices have sparred over issues that remain disputed to the present day: prostitution, pornography, decisions about reproduction including birth control, abortion, and prenatal testing, the balance between motherhood and employment, definitions of labor, paid work, and care, the relationships between individual and family and state. I argue that these feminist debates explain an important paradox: Why Japan is such a highly developed nation yet ranks dismally low in gender equality. Part of the answer lies in the contested definitions of gender equality and women’s liberation. Starting with the Seitō (Blue Stocking) group in the Meiji period and ending with womenomics, promoted by Abe Shinzō, and including accounts of women’s lib, state feminism, and the conservative backlash, this book traces the struggles over these definitions over the last hundred years of modern Japanese history. It also situates these debates in relation to modern Japanese social policy and comparative discussions about Asian welfare regimes. -- Publisher's website

This book explores the monstrous-feminine in Japanese popular culture, produced from the late years of the 1980s through to the new millennium. Raechel Dumas examines the role of female monsters in selected works of fiction, manga, film, and video games, offering a trans-genre, trans-media analysis of this enduring trope. The book focuses on several iterations of the monstrous-feminine in contemporary Japan: the self-replicating shōjo in horror, monstrous mothers in science fiction, female ghosts and suburban hauntings in cinema, female monsters and public violence in survival horror games, and the rebellious female body in mytho-fiction. Situating the titles examined here amid discourses of crisis that have materialized in contemporary Japan, Dumas illuminates the ambivalent pleasure of the monstrous-feminine as a trope that both articulates anxieties centered on shifting configurations of subjectivity and nationhood, and elaborates novel possibilities for identity negotiation and social formation in a period marked by dramatic change.

With gender as its central focus, this book offers a transnational, multi-faceted understanding of citizenship as legislated, imagined, and exercised since the late eighteenth century. Framed around three crosscutting themes - agency, space and borders - leading scholars demonstrate what historians can bring to the study of citizenship and its evolving relationship with the theory and practice of democracy, and how we can make the concept of citizenship operational for studying past societies and cultures. The essays examine the past interactions of women and men with public authorities, their participation in civic life within various kinds of polities and the meanings they attached to their actions. In analyzing the way gender operated both to promote and to inhibit civic consciousness, action, and practice, this book advances our knowledge about the history of citizenship and the evolution of the modern state.

In the postwar period, Japanese politics has evolved considerably, with issues of gender, representation, and household economics becoming increasingly salient. Meanwhile, since the end of the Cold War, Japan has joined other developed states in the process of decentralization and deindustrialization. Yet, its restructuring has come at a slower pace, as the Japanese bureaucracy attempts to retain a more traditional approach. This book, a translated and updated version of the author's 2010 monograph Nihon seijiron, traces these developments in Japanese politics from the end of the Asia Pacific wars to the present day. Examining each of the key stages of transition, it looks at four aspects of Japanese politics: high politics, interest-centered politics, life-centered politics, and globalization. It also provides up-to-date analysis of contemporary themes, including the Abe administration’s challenge to international politics and coverage of nuclear issues. Written by an experienced Japanese scholar, this book ultimately demonstrates how globalization has transformed the nature of local politics, as well as national security. However, as seen in the recent triple disaster of 2011 (a chapter on which has been added), Japanese politics retains traditional practices that have led to corruption, scandal, and political mistrust among the electorate. Offering a comprehensive introduction to Japanese politics, this book will be invaluable reading for students and scholars of Japanese politics and comparative and Asia politics in general.

Die Autobiografie – zum 70. Geburtstag am 30. November 2016 Sie hat die Grenzen der Kunst gesprengt: sich gepeitscht, mit einer Glasscherbe ein Pentagramm in den Bauch geritzt, ein Messer in die Finger gerammt. Sie ist 2500 Kilometer auf der Chinesischen Mauer gegangen, zwölf Jahre in einem umgebauten Citroën-Bus durch die Welt gefahren und hat ein Jahr bei den Aborigines in Australien gelebt. Spätestens seit »The Artist is Present« – ihrer berühmten Performance 2010 im New Yorker Museum of Modern Art - gilt Marina Abramović in der ganzen Welt als Kultfigur. Robert Redford schwärmt für sie genauso wie Lady Gaga. Vom »Time Magazine« wurde sie zu den 100 wichtigsten Menschen des Jahres 2014 gewählt. In ihren Memoiren blickt Abramović zurück auf sieben Lebensjahrzehnte als charismatische Künstlerin und Grenzgängerin. Von ihrer strengen Kindheit im kommunistischen Jugoslawien, wo sie bei ihren der politischen Elite nahestehenden Eltern im Schatten Titos aufwuchs – bis hin zu ihren jüngsten Aktionen, bei denen sie die Seele von Millionen von Menschen mit der Kraft ihres Schweigens berührte.
