Featured Publication: Negotiating Censorship in Modern Japan

Negotiating Censorship in Modern Japan

Hutchinson, Rachael. 2013. Negotiating censorship in modern Japan. Abingdon, Oxon: Routledge.

Of the twelve chapters in Negotiating Censorship in Modern Japan (ed. Rachael Hutchinson, Routledge Contemporary Japan Series no. 45), four were written by scholars who have done research in the Prange Collection.  They are:

Jonathan Abel, “Seditious obscenity/obscene seditions: the radical eroticism of Umehara Hokumei.”

Eleanor Kerkham,  “Censoring Tamura Taijiro’s Biography of a Prostitute (Shunpuden).”

Noriko Akimoto Sugimori, “Censoring imperial honroifics: a linguistic analysis of Occupation censorship in newspapers and literature.”

Kirsten Cather, “Parodying the censor and censoring parody in modern Japan.”

Kerkham’s and Sugimori’s articles address censorship during the Allied Occupation.
